Loughborough MBA with Intership VS Aston MBA


Hi

I have offer for Loughborough MBA with Internship and also for Aston MBA.
My priority is to get a Job after completion of my degree.Also please let me know as I am quite confused on taking my final decision.

International Ranking - Aston has come under both FT and Economist Ranking in the past whereas Loughborough is missing
National Raking - Loughborough is performing well in top 10 pushing Aston behind in Complete University Guide and Guardian Ranking

Quite Confused to decide.Both are Triple Accrediated and as mentioned earlier my priority is to get a Job after completion of my degree in UK.

Guide me in choosing .

Thanks in advance.

I think you are mixing up MBA rankings, like the FT and Economist, with general undergraduate rankings. The MBA rankings are more appropriate.

If your priority is finding work, then why not try for a better programme: Best schools for international students' placement http://www.find-mba.com/board/41143

Hi Duncan,

Thank You for the reply.But I have few other constraints as well.I can extend myself to pay only 22000 GBR as tution fee.I found that these colleges were good under this.All the other mentioned have a fee of above 28000 GBR.

Also the rankings are for Business and Management studies :
CUG Ranking:
http://www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/league-tables/rankings?s=Business+%26+Management+Studies

Gurdian Ranking:
http://www.theguardian.com/education/ng-interactive/2014/jun/03/university-guide-2015-league-table-for-business-management-and-marketing

Correct me if I'm wrong , also can you suggest me an alternative if any.

What are your goals? Perhaps a specialised MSc at a better school would have superior placement?

Nottingham is in your budget. Durham is only 25k.

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for the reply.I would want to shift from a techie role to a Managerial Role.Moreover an MSc after an Engineering degree is not usually accepted,as I hail from India.My plan is to get back after working for few years gaining International Exposure.

A PGDM can be an option.I have heard about PGDM in Canada SPP colleges but have not opted for them as I did not get much data about the kind of jobs post completion.

Your suggestions is much appreciated.

I don't know your background, but many MBAs at the low/unranked non-GMAT schools go into functional or specialised roles. Many Aston alumni with MBAs are working in business development, marketing, finance or operations, for example rather than in senior management roles. I could imagine that, for example, going to a top business school might give you a similar or better outcome. I am thinking of the MEB at ESCP Europe, a MSc from Imperial, Warwick or Cass. or perhaps the best option would be the Cranfield MSc in Finance and Management.

I don't understand what you mean by "an MSc after an Engineering degree is not usually accepted". Some MSc programmes in the German-speaking region are aimed at people with prior business degrees, but in the UK they are certainly open to engineering graduates.
