Cass vs Cranfield


Hi All,

I have interviews with Cass and Cranfield coming up. I was just hoping to canvas some opinions on thoughts of both schools.

Im 27 and an accountant with 6 years professional experience in both the utility and retail sector. Post MBA I'm hoping to secure a role (probably in the city) in Business Strategy or possibly consultancy for maybe one of the big 4.

Does anyone have a view on which uni would be better catered for me given my experience and where I would like to go in the future.

Thanks

Dee

Hi Dee. When you write 'big four' I guess you mean Deloitte, PwC, KPMG and E&Y. Both those schools will be good choices for them. Cass is better respected for its EMBA but the MBA is a solid programme. The central London location is a huge advantage. Cranfield is the better school and the cohort will be better there, but if you choose Cass you will also be fine.

Why do you say that Cranfield is the better school? I don't disagree, necessarily, but just wanted to hear why you think that way. Thanks.

Well, higher salaries, better career support, better teaching, bigger alumni network, *much* more international and gender diversity, stronger full-time MBA, much more scale, better brand equity *as a b-school* and as a university....
