Glasgow, Strathclyde or Loughborough


Lucius
Hi,

this is my second post. Now I have come down to these three offers.

My work experience is connected to electricity utilities for almost 18 years, and Strathclyde have specific MBA for managers from Scottish Power. This one also seems more specialised in renewable energy degrees, but Loughborough seems always on top of rankings.

Also, I prefer to live in city as I am moving with my partner and she may look for a job in consulting. So, there will be more options than in Loughborough surroundings?

In case that I am decided to stay in the city, which one? Glasgow or Strathclyde?
Glasgow appears more prestigious but Strathclyde is more interesting for work related.

Many thanks.

If you are shopping for an MBA focus on the value of MBA rather than the parent university. Strathclyde is the obvious choice of these three.i am not sure what ranking you think have Loughborough above Strathclyde but that is not an accurate picture of their MBAs.

PS Can you share with us why you decided against the schools mentioned in your first post, and the comments on it?

With a Strathclyde MBA, you *should* have better career options and salary growth, according to the rankings, all other things being equal. The Strath MBA is virtually always ranked higher than those from the other schools you're looking at. It would be the safest bet for the most part.

What are your goals? You don't necessarily need a specialized MBA in energy if you already have experience in utilities.

Hi! How does Bath stand among all of these?

I generally agree but it's worth pointing out that in last year's FT ranking - where both Strath and Bath were at the very bottom - Bath grads had marginally better salaries ($93k vs $91k).

That said, Strathclyde still had the edge in terms of its international mobility ranking. Just barely though.
