Lancaster v Bath MBA


oomagooma
Hello!

I've been going through this forum for advice on which college to pick. I have offers from Lancaster and Bath (rejected for Manchester). From the forum it clearly seems noone really recommends Lancaster and thus Bath between these two is the better option.

Would my "analysis" be correct? I was wondering why there have been no recommendations for Lancaster? I'm looking at a mid tier college (due to personal and financial reasons)

Thanks!

Obviously these are strong schools but neither of them are very good for international mobility or rapid employment. Strathclyde is a solid alternative.

Edinburgh might also be an option https://find-mba.com/board/general-forum/best-mbas-for-international-students-placement-35651

I am waiting for Edinburgh's response, thanks for that. I've read not so great things about Strathclyde's employment chance (have a couple of friends who did their course a couple years ago I think and not sure if they improved on it). Assuming I only have these 2 colleges, Lancaster and Bath, and assuming all other colleges rejected my application, which would be your choice?

Your friends at Strathclyde are not able to compare it to other UK options. The FT and QS data show it strongly outperforms Bath and Lancaster.

Bath seems to be the stronger option for international mobility and employment: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/global-mba-ranking-2018 it has a lower average salary, but I think that could be explained by the greater number of women at Bath.
