It's a tricky one for me, i have been researching both schools, and Uni Edinburgh does seem to have a much better overal reputation, however, MBA grads are not in any top companies almost if you look at tech, finance, banking, fund management, media... they tend to go to small companies in my view. However there are 600 applicants for the UEBS MBA and 100 offers (for example Imperial MBA has 441 applications for 150 offers and 75 students..).



While Manchester seems to have only 125 applicants for the 110 spots... however their graduates do end up in top paying companies that dominate their industries more frequently than Edinburgh... in tech and consulting, media..not so much finance (this is the purview of Oxbridge, LBS, LSE who dont have an MBA)

Personally, I don't see why you want an MBA to get into IT sales rather than, say, a degree in sales, business development, marketing etc...

If you honestly ask me i don't want to be part of IT but i spoke to most of the guys and they suggested that at this experience i can't change my profile so i thought its better to move into IT sales, ill be super happy if i can change my profile from IT to something into sales or supply chain logistics. I'm planning to study cz I really want to, i don't see any growth in my current profile and its not something which im enjoying.
M mostly looking for Dec 2020 intake cz I'm planning to study since 4 yrs now n everytiem misisng out due to certain reasons

As per Duncan's comment, why do you believe you need an MBA to get into IT sales? I would caution against being too fixated on this as a career move. With a global recession coming, companies are likely to cut back on technology investment in many areas over the next few years so this could be a very challenging time to make this move, especially as I presume you have no sales experience? 

I suggest you look at some forecast reports from the likes of Gartner and IDC which might give you some insight into where technology investment is going.

You say you don't enjoy IT - what roles have you done in the past? It might not be as difficult to move as you think. There are an increasing number of 'hybrid' job opportunities, mixing technology and business. Sales is a tough function to be in and it doesn't suit a lot of people.

This is terrifying. You need to start with your aptitude and preferences and work out what you would enjoy and be effective at. Then start from there. Try CareerLeader.com as a great way to see what you are best suited for.

That's what the whole issue is and that's why I thought ill do my MABand at least will move from the current BA role but with this huge experience I can't get into something which is completely new and nobody would welcome me in such roles so I thought soemthing in IT would be of help considering my technical experience and I was looking at firms like Amazon,Microsoft with some techno functional roles(w hich are atleast better thn my current role)

Thanks for such deep insight will def go through their report, what I'm more interested is Techno-Functional role(more into business development side which is KNown as IT sales in few companies) and to be honest to move from the current Lead and BA roles I need MBA, though the plan was to start MBA in 2015 but due to the inevitable situation couldn't start my studies and hence my exp got into higher rnage
