Bath vs Durham vs UCD Smurfit


MS2811
Hi Duncan,

I'm looking to pursue an MBA from UK or Ireland and have received offers from Bath, Durham, UCD, Lancaster and Strathclyde.

I'm inclined towards Bath or Durham in UK or alternatively UCD. Seek your advise in helping me make a choice.

I have around 14 yrs exp and felt Bath cohort might be a better fit. The rankings are all pretty evenly poised.

Thanks

I chose these based on the FT and Economist rankings for UK & Ireland. My goal is to get into management consulting or digital business as a program manager. The degree Shld help me secure a job in Europe. Hope this gives some insight. I had to rule out Oxbridge and Zimperial since I only have 12 yrs of experience but GMAT is not very high. It's about average.

Bath and Durham and Lancaster were the bottom ,50 ranked ones with 85-90 % placement

Which of these MBAs places best into your target consulting firms when you search on LinkedIn? Can't see too many digital businesses hiring MBAs as project managers from these schools...

Can somebody familiar with Bath and Durham throw some light as to the strengths and weakness of the two Universities with regard to business school.

Between Durham NC and Bath which is highly regarded within UK / globally.
