I talked to my friend who graduated from Cranfield univiersity's Master in Finance and Manangement. Out of 30-35 indians, according to him only 2 found a job in the UK.


That is a very bleak picture. I wonder why it is ranked high on the international mobility rankings. Compare that to an average university in the US like southern methodist and you can see that most of the linkedin profiles tell a different story to the international mobility rankings of the FT.

If you go through these profiles of indian students you will find that almost none of them have a job in the UK.

Compare that to this-

It's surprising, and probably says more about Brexit than about Cranfield. But it's not bleak, since surely they all found work elsewhere and will benefit from their degree.

However, it might also not be true. Maybe only 10 percent had UK jobs at the end of teaching, when they last saw each other. We also don't know how many had jobs elsewhere by graduation.

Also, remember Indians can have high expectations. At a similar Indian school all the students would be hired mid way through.

And also keep in mind that that program is a pre-experience master's degree, which means that many grads will come into it straight after graduation. Frankly, this type of graduate is generally less desirable than somebody who has experience.

When Cranfield is discussed on this forum, it's usually in the context of the school's full-time MBA program, which is designed for those with a decent amount (4-6 years) of work experience.
