Do you think the most-read page on the business school's website is more likely to be mistaken than your counsellor? It would be *very* unusual for any accredited MBA in the UK to take students without work experience, let alone one in the top 100 worldwide, like Birmingham. Is your counsellor perhaps talking about some other university in the region, like Coventry or Birmingham City?

Hey i think you counselor must be recommending you some college in birmingham and not birmingham university. please re check and be aware there are lot of colleges like birminghma college, birmingham international college etc which are just pvt colleges and with no credibility. I can assure you that birmingham will not take any one with less that 3 years of work exp.

Hi,

I am looking at possibly applying for MBA in UK for 2012-13 batch. My choices include:

University of Birmingham
Aston University
Oxford Brookes University
Bradford
Sheffield
Durham

My main focus is on the top 3 colleges mentioned above.

A little background about me:

3.5 years postgraduate work ex in Marketing & Sales
1 year work ex. in London as part of my sandwich BBA (Hons.) course

I have completed my BBA (Hons.) from the Indian affiliated college of Oxford Brookes University and have their degree as well. I was placed in Upper Second Class Hons.

Now I wish to know what are my best options? Do I need to give a GMAT exam to get through? Will IELTS be necessary since I have a UK degree already? What are the employment opportunities in UK at the moment?

Thanks
Akshey

You should check with them, but I guess you might need GMAT at Sheffield or Oxford Brookes. I guess many will ask for IELTS, since your degree in Indian might not be evidence of your listening and oral skills.

The employment situation is hard here. We have the highest unemployment for a long time.

Hi Akshey. I am not very sure weather you would need to take IELTS or not it will depend on how many years you have studies here in the UK. but i think most of the universities you have mentioned may exempt your GMAT and IELTS requirements. As regards to your work opportunities, again it will depend on your past work experience and also on your luck, although UK is going through deep recession but highly skilled people are still in demand

Mamit, I don't think this person has studied in the UK at all.

Is Bradford's test is easier than the GMAT?

No I haven't studied in the UK but instead from a partner institute of Oxford Brookes University, hence my degree is from there...and since it was a sandwich course I interned in London too for a year

How is Aston compared to University of Birmingham, I mean out of the two of them which would you recommend for MBA in Marketing?

Neither Aston nor Birmingham offer more than two electives in marketing. In terms of research, MSc and reputation for marketing I.d say that Birmingham is stronger.

Hi Duncan.. Yes Bradford Test is comparatively easier than GMAT. And with regards to the IELTS requirements.. some universities are very perticular about IELTS, for example B'Gham, but i have seen cases in Bradford and even Warwick have accepted students without IELTS certificate, provided student has scored well in English in his Class 12. and can demonstrate good work experience (i.e. in MNCs) where language of communication is english.

If you are looking for MBA then i would suggest you for a general MBA, and you can choose your electives as required. To be honest both Aston and Birmingham enjoys almost similar reputation among employers here in the UK.

Lol and I hope they have a good reputation too at that....I would definitely be looking at employment options post MBA, hopefully in UK or Europe to recover my investment in education.

I noticed here that Birmingham is now one of the top 20 MBAs in Europe, while Aston is stronger for MSc degrees. Like most UK schools, they are under pressure in the rankings because of the recession. Germany schools are going very well.

Could you tell me your opinions regarding which university is more reasonable for full-time normal MBA?

-Aston
-Birmingham, or
-Bath

I think their rankings are more or less similar, in terms of price University of Birmingham looks more reasonable, do you agree? Thanks for your answers

I think Birmingham is the only one to be in the FT top 100, and that sounds reasonable. That school has taken such a massive step forward since moving into the new building, and I expect it to grow more momentum.

At the MBA level, Birmingham is ahead; for MSc degrees then Aston and Bath are ahead.

All the UK schools are suffering in the European schools ranking (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/european-business-school-rankings-2011) but Birmingham has fallen the least.

I think there is not much difference in terms of rankings between Birmingham and Aston, but bath looks better.

Well, I wouldn't take The Economist's ranking too seriously. It focusses on increase in salary -- which means that schools that recruit junior people get pushed up the rankings while schools that obtain higher salaries are lower. The fact that Bath gets ranked above UCLA, Cornell and Yale is quite ridiculous, and discredits that ranking.
