Employment after MBA from BATH


Mizanur

Hi All,

I am Mizanur and i got selected for BATH SOM (with scholarship) for full time MBA 2020 Sept Intake. Due to pandemic, i have deferred it to Sept 2021.
I am currently a Business Analytics/Development Manager with Flipkart (which is India's largest e-comm company and owned by Walmart) with 8 years of experience in e-commerce, client management, digital marketing, and web-analytics.
GMAT - 600
IELTS - 7.5

I just want to have an overview of BATH SOM in general. How reputable is it in UK?
Do firms like Amazon recruit people from BATH? I really want to grow in the same domain and working for BD teams in Amazon, Facebook is my dream

I also got selected for Surrey MBA with 60% scholarship. But i have decided to attend BATH SOM.

Any leads to the above query will be very helpful.

Take a look at the article linked from my profile page about using LinkedIn.

Amazon and Facebook have different approaches to recruitment.

Thanks a lot Duncan, will definitely take a look. But also want to the reputation of BATH overall. Is its SOM considered good in UK.
Where does it stand ? I know it has few very good rankings and considered one of the good MBA colleges in UK

I think it's important to separate the ranking of the university from that of the MBA. 

Bath SOM is a good school, and it's ranked fairly. It's more a pre-experience school than an MBA player. It doesn't place eveny across industries. It's not, for example, a notable provider of MBAs for the top management consultancies. It's better at placing MBAs in IT and Financial Services. However, it has many undergrad alumni at McKinsey & Company and Bain & Company who have typically done their MBAs at top schools like INSEAD, Kellogg or London Business School. 

Similarly, there are many Bath alumni in IT firms like Oracle and Microsoft but they tend to have done their MBAs elsewhere.

Thanks a ton Duncan.

I really consider myself having a good professional experience after working with some of the major global companies over the past 8 years (Time Inc. , Hewlett-Packard, Flipkart etc.). Now i feel to move to the next step in my professional career.

I know i have to put in some serious effort during my MBA year to get my dream job. 
Do companies in UK give too much preference to B-schools? What if i acquire the relevant skills during my MBA year and then apply to different companies, will the ranking of the school still be a hindrance?

FYI: I want to majors in Marketing (my current field along with analytics) and finance in my MBA year from BATH SOM. I thoroughly checked the linkedIN profiles but couldnt find any one working in Amazon. I dont mind being the first of the lot :)

Yes, it matters which schools you attend. I am sure that is true also in your country. Outcomes vary between schools. The best employers recruit for the best roles at the best schools. If you want to work in marketing at Amazon UK, don't take the Bath MBA. Take an MSc in marketing at the schools that send the most MSc graduates to Amazon UK. Also, remember that Amazon has bigger offices in Ireland and Luxembourg.
