Cass vs Imperial EMBA


matski
Hi, I am looking to do an Executive MBA at either Cass or Imperial, I have an interview with Cass tomorrow for a September 12th start (is it worrying that they still have spaces this late?).

I currently work in Financial Services and I am looking for a career change into Marketing, based on this I know Cass is very Finance sector focused, but which would be best in your opinions?

Is it worth looking at the likes of Cranfield? Or other Business Schools? London location is quite important

Are you looking to move into a marketing role, or a non-marketing role in a marketing company? A world-class executive masters in marketing, like the ESADE/Bocconi EMMS might be better. I think the best London options for you will be the Warwick EMBA at London Bridge or the LBS EMBA, but both of those will require a 600 GMAT.

Thank you for the info. I've had a look at the Warwick EMBA, and I don't see a requirement for a GMAT? I have previously done the GMAT and got 680, but that was almost 5 years ago.

I am also conscious that I have only 5 years relevant work experience.

No, they don't require the GMAT because it's less quant-heavy than most other EMBAs. Ask them whether you fit. I did the MBA at LBS and 680 would have been a good score for the EMBA [but, of course, way too low for the full-time degrees]. The average work experience was perhaps around a dozen years, but we had a few people who were 27 or 28 and had made great progress and were earning MBA-type salaries already. I think the Warwick structure, with a compact core and a lot of electives, is very good for people wanting to move into new functional areas but who cannot take a tull-time degree.
