Bradford v/s Aston v/s Nottingham


Thanks Mamit,

for prompt reply,
Bradford fits my choice in terms of expense and course content,
I am from U.S. so getting job with non - ACCSB accredited b-school will be problem, Although there are very good b-schools with non triple accredition but still are reputed, Hope Bradford gets accredition these year after audit.
In terms of location there are few firms in Bradford too but not many.

@Mamit:- Do you think Bradford have chance for triple accredition.

Christina,

England's really a very small country, and Bradford is in the middle of a large conurbation which spans from Liverpool through Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds.

But if AACSB is crucial to you, why study in the UK?

There are some one-year MBAs in the US (and some two-year ones in the UK). If the US is your target, then search through the US discussion board for one year MBAs.

Bradford has AMBA and EQUIS, which are good enough accreditations... speaking to Alumni of last 3 years batch , every batch thought there batch would get AACSB..but it never happened...

Considering all the schools are tier-2, you need to find out Brand dividend of the school, what does the employee thinks of the school..

Scholarship are starting from 2012 batch.. and £2000 is not for someone from USA.. read more

Your living expense can be a cheaper only if you take private accommodation, if you live in University Halls , its the same all over...and if you are investing £20000 , one can look over saving small amount..

All the best...

Dear All,

Have been reading this post and seems to me that since Aston is closer to Birmingham it has an edge over Bradford. The distance between Birmingham and Bradford is 146kms, Manchester is 56kms and Leeds is approx 12kms. What i dont seem to understand is post MBA cant one shift to any of these places and hunt for a job. In my opinion the location should be secondary and the other parameters like accreditations and choice of electives should be the primary criteria for selecting / deselecting a school. Aside does Aston carry a huge brand dividend when compared to Bradford.

If we consider Location as a major criteria, then I think Lancaster or Durham should not be considered at all, as these towns are not even 20% of the size of Bradford and are even further away from London.
AACSB is not a very essential accreditation in the UK as compared to AMBA and Equis. at present Bradford is a member institution of AACSB and is in a process of getting accredited.
rest will depend on the outcome of the audit.

The UK is a small country and both those cities have great rail connections. The costs of buying train tickets are more than offset by the lower cost of living.

Hi I would say that you have selected pretty decent list of programs, but can also try for Programs at Imperial, City University, Cranfield and Warwick as they have much better reputation if you can get through.

All very similar, but I think Bradford has the edge. I would also look at the Nottingham campuses in China and Malaysia. A great MBA at a much lower cost there, and a very powerful experience.


Hi Duncan,

Could you give out some more details about the Nottingham Business School, Malaysia campus??
Cost wise i find it far lower side than doing it from UK, as course and the degree provided is the same in all 3 campuses.

Please let me know about the placement statistics of the Malaysian campus. Like Avg Salary, Employment % within 3Months.. Etc. [Din get all these info on their website]

Any more details about the college too is helpful. :)

You will need to ask them. The averages will be similar to Malaysian averages.

This does look like an interesting program, but I can't seem to find employment stats either. I would assume that it's fine if you want to work in Malaysia, or potentially mainland China - but the campus' career services will probably not stretch further than that.

I would try to take advantage of the inter-campus study options in the UK and China, for a more international experience.

1. Course content you can be your judge (modules/program which interests you most)
2. for Job & Networking - you got to know the career services of the school, you can contact the alumni of the school to know more about their career services
3. All the school mentioned by you have good International Reputation

My pick would have been
1.Lancaster
2. Bradford
3. Aston
