Finding the right MBA


Hello Duncan/Stuart or anyone who could help me with their knowledge & guidance.



I Need help with finding the right place to pursue my MBA. I have only 50% in undergraduate but my total experience is close to 14 years in India. 4 years experience in business & 10+ years experience in Business Operations in TL, managerial & people management roles with Amazon & Accenture(Google digital process). I have been planning to do my MBA but not sure about which college should college to. I want to do MBA to learn more about project management, international operations management, business analytics (I have experience of working on process improvement ideas & work on the relevant data analysis with my the Business intelligence & Process improvement teams internally in launch of new product features & services in international e-commerce setting) and supply chain management.



Also would like to learn about digital marketing as it seems interesting and might help me in the future.



My main objective is to grow further in my career in to senior management roles in operaions/project or into management roles in Data analytics. I want to do learn more about these specialities as these are interesting for me.



I have been checking about a lot of Triple crown accreditation colleges but they seem to high entry requirements with regards to undergraduate degree percentage. I'm not sure if I would be accepted in any Triple accredited colleges. If I get accepted will I be eligible to scholarship? After graduation will I be abel to get a job in UK?



I would like to do an 24 month MBA or executive MBA to have the classroom experience of learning, to learn on a more steady pace & support myself with regards to the finance part of my fees.



Please suggest what colleges would be my best chance. Thanks in advance for your help & time.

You want to learn about things that are not in the core MBA curriculum. You will be better served by a MSc in IT management like https://www.edx.org/masters/online-master-in-it-management-indiana-university 

If you want to work in the UK (and it's not the only, or most open, country in the world) then attend a strong university with excellent careers services. Below I have ranked the schools in the FT MSc ranking with UK campuses, sorted by their career services rating. Universities listed below are worth reviewing to see if they have MSc degrees focussed on the topics you want to study. 

London Business School

Alliance Manchester Business School

Lancaster University Management School

Imperial College Business School

Cranfield School of Management

Durham University Business School

Warwick Business School

University of Edinburgh Business School

University of Bath School of Management

ESCP Business School

Leeds University Business School

TBS (Toulouse Business School)

City, University of London, The Business School (formerly Cass)

Hey Stuart thanks for your response. I had been searching many colleges and I agree that most aren't offering the modules I asked in core modules. I have my entire experience in those modules so thought you might know if I can choose something wisely with your guidance. I have seen some colleges offering a particular module (not all the modules) in their curriculum, I will check again to see which would be best for my interests. 
If you have to rate between International MBA or Business analytics which is the best?

Considering your goals, an MSc in analysis seems to be a better option. The Georgia Tech degree comes to mind as the sort of curriculum that might meet your needs: https://www.edx.org/masters/online-master-science-analytics-georgia-tech

In the UK, Aston, Imperial, City, Lancaster, Leeds, Manchester, Warwick, Durham and Edinburgh might be worth consider as world-leading universities with similar degrees. At Bath, Bristol, Exter, UCL, Kent, Nottingham and other notable schools there are similar programmes outside top business schools, and they will tend to have less strong careers support.

You might also want to focus on some more precise goals in terms of what knowledge you want/need for your next career move. You mention wanting to learn more about project management, international operations management, business analytics, supply chain management and digital marketing. That's very broad. Perhaps consider doing some separate shorter courses in digital marketing for example to complement a core masters.
