Take the GMAT. It's not hard to get a score of 600 or so, and that will combine with your work experience to get you into a great programme.

Thanks for your reply ....well, im planning to return back once i get the MBA degree but as per your answer it seems the GMAT will enforce my experience more although the feedback i got on GMAT is not easy to pass !!!!..

Please advice which business school with affordable tuition fees (15-20K) can provide such a great FT MBA program with good accommodation plus good city to live in( outside London) ?

Cranfield School of Management
Imperial College London
Judge Business School
London Business School
London School of Economics and Political Science
Manchester Business School
Nottingham University Business School
Said Business School

I would agree that you should at least try your hand at the GMAT. Schools that require GMAT are more competitive, but with these schools your post-graduation salary will be better, you'll have a better networking, better career services support, etc.

My list of FT ranked schools in the UK that are close to your budget:

Bradford, £22,450
Edinburgh, £15,300
Birmingham, £19,000

If you can boost your budget a bit, you can also consider these:

Durham, £25,000
Aston, £24,700
Lancaster, £26,000

Wow! I didn't know Edinburgh was that cheap! Right now, it costs £27,100!!! I wouldn't go for it as the fee rises on an average of £3,000 per year!

The University of Edinburgh Business School has changed massively in four years: a new building, triple-accreditation, and the school has doubled in size. It gets around eight applicants for every place in the masters programme. Its MBA seems like a bargain when you consider that its MSc in finance is £26,350. That's a very small premium for a very high-quality school, now in the top ten UK schools according to Eduniversal. Considering its graduates' average salary of $89k with the Bradford MBA's $68k, I'd say that Bradford is starting to look rather over-priced.

That's fair enough. :)

As far as I see, GMAT may not be a strict requirement to join a quality MBA, particularly in the UK. For example, according to their website, Durham does not "require" a GMAT in all cases. What I understand from their statements is that they "may require" a GMAT to compansate for some other "required" qualifications, when necessary.
The same applies for Lancaster.

I think to be placed within the top 100 FT MBA ranking consistently indicates that these universities offer quality MBA courses. However, it can be an obstacle for MBA candidates there logistically as Lancaster and Durham are in the middle of nowhere and up north thus, extremely far away from the capital city. I guess they are best fit for overseas students who will move back to their home country after completion of their course.

These are huge universities and major employers go there for milk round recruitment. England is pretty small and all rail links go to London in just a few hours. It's also worth looking at Best schools for international students' placement http://www.find-mba.com/board/41143 and the FT rankings. Durham and Lancaster are in the top third for international mobility, above City University London, IE and UCD (all of which are in capital cities). These good outcomes show that major MBA employers are not limited to central London schools (and, indeed, while 37% of MBAs in the UK are in London, that still means most are not). Reading, Manchester and Edinburgh are also notable centres - and Lancaster and Durham are well located for those last two. The high concentration of students who want to take MBA programmes in and around London also means there's a lot of competition with the talented international job seekers who also focus on that city.

I was actually just reading this article:

http://find-mba.com/articles/beyond-london-mba-programs-in-england

"Indeed, each region of the country offers different types of businesses and industries. Chris Saunders, the director of the full-time MBA program at Lancaster University Management School, says that a good deal of the industry around Lancaster is made up of energy firms and infrastructure, due to the fact that there are two nuclear power plants in the area. Also, the defense contractor BAE Systems is nearby, and its presence has spawned a whole network of smaller suppliers in the area."

I know it's not London, but a place like Lancaster is probably similar to a lot of other parts of England, in that there are economic strengths as well as weaknesses. Of course, London has a very strong financial sector and a diverse range of other industries, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the country has nothing to offer in terms of employment opportunities.
