Neither of them are good. Are these your only choices?

PS Maybe read http://www.find-mba.com/board/31120/ and http://www.find-mba.com/board/25664/1

If you want to be in London, I would only consider the following programs (in order of prestige):

LBS
Cass
Hult
University of Westminister

Anything else would not be worth the investment, in my opinion.

There a huge gap between Cass and Hult. I would put Imperial and Brunel above Hult.

I think the school matters more than the degree. Generally the programmes in international management are softer, and aimed more at students who will return to their home countries. Look at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2012

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for your reply!
Any specific reasons why MBAs in the Food and Agriculture sector opt for the schools you have mentioned?

I have offers from Brunel and Southampton. But Im awaiting a response from Birmingham, Bradford, Leeds and Glasgow....
What are your thoughts on these schools?

Regards

Well, I think the key thing is that those are the schools that UK students go to, so UK food and beverage businesses hire there. The schools you;ve mentions will, I think, have more international students.

Hi Duncan,

I got two more offers- Aberdeen business school Scotland and UC3M Spain.
I have Southampton and Brunel as well...

However, I would wait for responses from Bradford, Birmingham and Leeds.
I'm also planning to apply for Aston and Durham from the list of schools you mentioned earlier....

Would you recommend any of the schools that have sent me offers already?

Get into the best school you can. Of the schools you have mentioned, I'd look at Birmingham.

What would be your order of ranking for Aston, Durham, Birmingham, Bradford, Leeds and Glasgow. Would you consider comparing Brunel to any of these schools?

They all have AMBA accreditation, don't they?

I'd say:
Birmingham and Aston. I think Birmingham is up and coming.
Then a small gap
Durham and Bradford. I think Durham recruits better students, but Bradford does more with them.
Then a big gap.
Leeds, Brunel, Glasgow.

Interesting....
Well, yes all are AMBA accredited, some even triple (Durham, Aston and Bradford).

Glasgow doesnt appear in FT at the moment so yes Brunel is ahead of it....
Im curious to know about the "Big gap"... which schools would fill this gap....

I think the gap refers to the top schools in the UK (LBS, Cambridge Judge, Oxford Said, etc.) and the unranked ones (Brunel, Leeds, Strathclyde, and so on...)

The best schools tend to be much more selective and have more capacity to help land jobs in solid UK-based companies - so you see graduates of these schools getting better salaries, which is a main metric of the rankings. The not-so-good ones don't have comparable placements (and relatedly or not, tend to recruit fewer domestic students into their MBA programs.)

There are some middle-ground schools that are less selective than the top schools - Warwick, Manchester, Cranfield... That might fit in the gap you're talking about.

Those schools are all above the schools we've been discussing above. The FT ranking does, more or less, have the MBA programmes in the right order. The 2013 ranking is out later this month. But there's a big difference between the ranked and unranked schools: you lose a lot of applicants and employers when you fall out.

I quite agree with Duncan,The FT ranking is almost a bench mark for many applicants and employers.

Are we suggesting that LBS, Cambridge Judge, Oxford Said etc come after Durham and Aston in world rankings?

I think Brunel was in FT European business school rankings in 2010 and 2011 and Leeds was in global Ft rankings for 2009 and then in 2011....
I was looking at the gap between Durham/Bradford and Leeds/Brunel.... I dont think LBS falls in this gap at all.....?

No one suggests that. When I put the schools you asked about in order, I wasn't suggesting that the other schools do not exist. The FT ranking of MBAs shows the UK schools quite fairly.
