Why not go to a university with an accredited MBA instead? Go to http://www.find-mba.com/uk-ireland/1 and click on "Show AACSB-, AMBA- and EQUIS-accredited programs only ". The return on investment is much better for MBAs that are respected by employers.

For a better RoI than Coventry, either:
-get more work experience now and then get into an accredited programmes later or
-take a pre-experience MSc in management at an accredited school, ideally one of those ranked by the FT.

Don't take an MBA without experience. They will not have a good RoI. You will earn more if you get an MSc from a top school.

No, there is no good MBA where the students do not have work experience.

No, these MBAs will offer you a much worse RoI than a pre-experience MSc. Average salaries for their MBA graduates will be under $40,000, versus around $50,000 for the graduates of the FT-ranked MSc programmes (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management). Why pay more for a worse outcome and a much lower-quality university? It would not be a good choice.

Generally speaking, no accredited on-campus MBA outside the USA will accept candidates without work experience. That's also true in the USA, unless you have exceptional academic scores and extra-curricular experience.

An exception will be online MBAs. Many of these schools (http://www.find-mba.com/board/21614) are AASCB accredited and do not require work experience. However, the MSc will generally have much better careers support and placement records than online degrees.

I agree. If you are planning to stay back in UK then MSc from FT ranked B-School would be a better option, however in some countries like India (MBA enjoys better reputation then MSc degrees.) so it depends what are your priorities.

I think these are equally weak options. You will be better attending a business school with international accreditation.

It does not have any respected international accreditation. No, I guess that 40k is well over the average for Coventry MBAs. For those salaries you should take an MSc at a good business school.
