I'm at an MBS MBA information session in London tomorrow. Any questions you'd like answered -- which are not already answered on this site?

Average salary for the class of 2011 was £61071. Not all students are looking for internships, in particular sponsored students. 70% take internships and the compensation is typically between 800 and 1000 GBP. Impressive performance.

Also notable: full time students can take electives with the part time students at Manchester's international locations. Nice for those who do not do the exchange programme. Around a third of the time is taken up with client-facing projects.

I have been accepted into the Global MBA for July 2012. I have not replied to the offer letter yet.

Please can you help me and answer some questions:
1. How many hours per week does one need to study to be successful and graduate with a decent grade (assuming one takes the 3 years to graduate as prescribed)?

2. I have studied little to no statistics or advanced math in the past. How math intensive is the MBS MBA?

3. I noted the managerial economics text book by Besanko and it looks fairly technical (lots of stuff taken for granted with the microeconomic formulae for instance). How much of the time are you left to simply read the text book and figure it all out for yourself?

4. what is the format of the weekly lectures like? Recorded video, live video or is it all just read this and remember it stuff?

5. How tough are the exams? I see on the marketing material they claim the course is really tough.

Overall I am nervous - it seems like a great school but I am concerned about myself making it. I was accepted very quickly but now have the jitters. I have also been accepted at Uni of Liverpool MBA which seems to be less pressurized.

Please can you assist me as I am trying to make a good decision.

Thanks

I just started in January. Each assignment is progressively more difficult.

I took a look at some past Economics papers and gulped! Now I did three years of Economics at Strathclyde which surely means I should be well prepared!
