CASS or Cranfield for MBA for finance professional


Hi,
I am an Indian and i am a chartered accountant with 3 years of experience in finance and planning. I am also planning to do ACCA in few months.

I got offers from cranfield school of management and CASS business school and need to pay deposit to the schools in two weeks.

I need your help in choosing the school as i am unable to decide.

I want to move to consulting firms or investment banks. I know that cass is good for MBA in finance. But since i already have a good finance degree, and have good finance knowledge, i may be getting diminishing utility from the CASS MBA. I heard that cranfield helps to develop more leadership and interpersonal skills, which i think i should attain to go to higher positions.

But since cranfield uni is more into technology, will i be able to get good placements in finance sector(as much as i can get from CASS) after the MBA from cranfield?


thanks in advance.

Cranfield MBAs are paid more, so that suggests their place well into finance.

You can't go wrong with either school, but the extra term at Cranfield is a big advantage.

I don't think that you will necessarily get "diminishing utility' from doing the Cass degree.

Both degrees are fairly balanced in terms of finance curriculum, and from what I can tell, more Cass grads have been going into consulting than finance in recent years.

Best advice I can offer would be to look at the consulting and IB firms you'd like to work in, and see where their employees have done their MBAs. LBS will undoubtedly be number one school for most of these firms, but I'm assuming Cranfield and Cass have at least some representation in many firms.

The big asset for Cass is the part time MBA alumni network in the City. It's one of the few schools whose EMBA is much better than its MBA.
