Cranfield MSc.finance


P90p
Hello I need your advice.

MSc. Finance at Cranfield compare with ICMA , Manchester, Durham and Edinburge which one is the best for job prospect ?

I have already read FT ranking. Cranfield is the highest. I know that cranfield is very well know in Europe. I also like the course structure with teaching both finance and management. The course seem focus on corporate finance aim for IB which is my aim.(come back to my country) I think cranfield is my top choice.

On the other hand, my concern is I am from asian which cranfield is not well known. ( However, I graduated from the best university in my country but my grade is not very high.) Should I worry about the reputation in asia ?

Another concern cranfield has just announced to open new university in MK which use the name as MKU, so is it possible that cranfield will close ( or change the name) and move to new university?. Then My degree would not have back up university.

I know that may be I am concern too much but fee of the course is really high, so I have to think all aspect.

Sorry for my english if some content is hard to understand and thank you for your advice.

Cranfield is certainly the best choice. The only serious alternative should be better school. Cranfield will not close.

Search the board, because someone else has also been asking about the finance MSc at Cranfield.

The FT ranking is very useful http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2017 but of course look for school with corporate finance tracks like Cass and Henley ICMA. KCL isn't a very serious competitor, but Cass alumni salaries are very impressive: almost as good as Cranfield. Durham could be a good safety school.

Rotterdam and Lancaster come close on salary. Lausanne and Tilburg are great value. Obviously there are also many schools even better for finance in general; Warwick, Frankfurt, Dublin. Catolica;

I focus only UK university, so If Cass on par with Cranfield and Durham, Lancaster ,Manchester, Edin, KCL and ICMA are a way below Cranfield, I would go for Cranfield. Is it right conclusion ?

Cass has higher fee and cost of living in london is very high. WBS is requrire GPA very high which I don’t have.

If Cranfield is not close or change thr name, it would be the best considering all condition. (They will open undergrad university for enginerring and cranfield will lead for both academic partner and business.)

Thank you so much ducan. I really appreciate it.

In addition, as I read the ranking Cranfield has very high salary and employment rate is 100 % but career progress and career service is not good. Do you know why career progress is not good? I think they have module like HR management, so it should help for soft skill. But I wonder why result of career progress is not good.

Personally I would pick Cranfield because the more extensive curriculum and rural setting supports solid learning from a managerial perspective, rather than just a technical training. Since Warwick and Cass don't fit you, I think it's the best UK choice available. Perhaps Lancaster is the closest alternative, but the outcomes, cohort, education and school spirit are better at Cranfield.

The MK:U campus will not be a Cranfield University campus. It will be managed by them, perhaps in the way that Cranfield manages various military school. The MK campus will be more like a polytechnic aimed at STEM subjects and with strong support for Apprentceship programmes. It's a different value proposition, but it will help Cranfield to increase its faculty numbers and better exploit infrastructure.

Dear Ducan
Sorry for asking agian

Could I ask one more question?
I would like to know about MSc. Finance at Manchester. My friend said that business school is good and well known. Inaddition, overall ranking Manchester is top 30 university in the world. But after I read FT ranking it appear only MBA, for MSc. Finance it is not appear. (QS ranking it is high eventhough Qs ranking is new for business ranking.) Which rank should I trust?

But I confuse how good it is comparing with Cranfield for MSc. Finance.

Thank you.

It is not as good as Cranfield for the MSc in finance. Of course your friend is right that is a good school and an excellent university. However, for the MSc in finance the best schools are the ones in the FT ranking.

Maybe share this with your friend. Cranfield is a better business school than Manchester: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/european-business-school-rankings-2017 And, as a Manchester graduate, I am happy to admit that.

Thank you so much for your promptly reply.

Manchester is good school but it is for MBA.
Cranfield is good school for both MBA and MSc. Program and better for MSc. Finance.

So ok I am clear in my mind. Cranfield is the best choice for me.

Really thank for your kindly help.

Yes, just to give you a bit of context: Alliance Manchester Business School is the fusion of two business schools: Manchester Business School was an MBA and executive education provider, and the UMIST school of management was a BSc and MSc provider. The schools have generally stayed in their own buildings and the experiences are a bit different even though they have a common brand.
