Help! Business School decision: LSE vs Imperial vs Kings vs Warwick


davidolce

Hey,



My goal is to work in the business field and more precisely in the marketing of wearable health related technologies (Nike, FitBit, etc).



So far, these are my options:



- LSE MSc Media and Communication

- Joint Degree LSC Media and Communication & University of Southern California MSc Global Media and Communication

- King's College MSc International Marketing

- Warwick Business School MSc Business



And I have an interview soon for Imperial Business School MSc Strategic Marketing.



If accepted, where should I go to pursue a career in business internationally?



In terms of Business Schools rankings, Imperial and Warwick are well ranked. (LSE and King's aren't business schools). But in terms of prestige, LSE rules out all of them. The issue is that the program at LSE isn't business-related. It's very theoretical.

Do you think it's better to develop my critical mind/analytical skills at LSE and anything business related I could learn once I start working?



WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Imperial is an excellent fit with your goals, and certainly the best of these options. Warwick is next best. I have no idea why you would consider the management department at King's for anything other than research training.

You want to work, in wearable technology. So I think you should take a course that improves your ability to generate value for those firms, either in business function or in technology development. Imperial is a school of science and technology with a strong track-record for entrepreneurship, innovation and technical design. At their or Warwick you could learn a business function and how to apply it. In a media programme, you will learn how to think critically about the role of TV, print, radio and internet content: this does not help you meet your goals much. Perhaps an MSc in management at the LSE is the better direction?

If you want to work somewhere else, study there instead of England. Otherwise, look for the programme at maximises the business value you can generate, since that will increase demand for you.
