There's an MBA program search at http://www.find-mba.com/search

Generally, because the MBA is normally one year here, there are not many accredited MBAs with specialisations in the UK.

If you want to work in Britain you'll have a much better return on your investment if you attended a university, and ideally one which is internationally accredited, rather than a for-profit private school.

Agreed.

There aren't many reputable MBA programs in the UK with a concentration in human resources. This is because human resources isn't really that technical, and is usually adequately covered in the core curriculum of an MBA program. In my opinion, a better option than the Greenwich program would be to do a general MBA from a ranked business school.

For example, in Bradford's program, you could take a few human-resources related electives. Also, human resources makes up a chunk of the core curriculum in the programs at Cass and Durham.

Whenever I see the phrase 'an MBA in...' I think the person using those words misunderstands the point of an MBA. It's supposed to be a generalist course on managing businesses and other organisations, not a masters-level program in a specific discipline.

With most MBA programs it's possible to achieve some degree of concentration in broad areas through a choice of electives and/or independent projects. This may appeal if your current or intended career is in a particular area, such as HR. Equally, a good MBA course should expose you to other disciplines and industries, which may lead you to follow a different path.
