Bath, Strathclyde, Edinburgh or Uni of Westminster


Hello, a bit of advice needed. I have an experience of about 5 years in automotive industry management in India and UAE.

I applied for MBA to UK mainly for few reasons
1. I am currently working in UAE and if I want to return back here their education is well recognized here plus they follow lot of guidelines similar to UK in terms of Auto industry
2. UK education is recognized well globally
3. Unfortunately I don't have a GMAT score

Goals
I would like to work in UK for certain amount of years if possible. If not I wold come back to UAE.

I have got admit into Bath University, Strathclyde, Uni of Edinburgh and Uni of Westminster. All for MBA

Bath - Economist gives it good ranking. FT doesn't. Confused as to what is the issue. Also Bath is part of pilot visa which allows student to stay six months in the country after their masters' course

Strathclyde - Has a good ranking overall and it seems their networking is also good. But still un-clear.

Edinburgh - Seems like a good uni but is it better than the other options I have

Westminster - Ranking is quite behind other colleges but its location is in Central London.

Your advice would really help me in taking a sound decision. Thanks in advance

Strathclyde is the obvious choice if you want to work in the UK. Bath is maybe a close second.

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for an amazingly fast reply. Been reading your post for sometime now. Yup Strathclyde do seem right. Bath seems to have the 6months stay in UK after graduation visa advantage. You think it can be a decision changer?

If you want to work on your own startup then it's a big advantage. I guess it depends on how close your post-MBA and pre-MBA career fields are. The bigger the leap, he more you would benefit from more time with something like the Manchester MBA that allowed you to specialise more.

I might have an admit into Hult's dual degree program. MBA plus masters in business statistics. Advantage of this course is that this course is completed in 1.5 years with two degree and in San Francisco. I would also be eligible for STEM visa of three years post graduation which is an added advantage.

Consedering I am a non technical guy from automotive industry (5years experience) and would like to work in the same industry or consulting withing USA or UK, do you think Hult seems like a better option?

Warwick is much better, and has great connections with manufacturing and automotive.

Of course, you'll need a GMAT score for the Warwick MBA...
