Manchester vs. Warwick, Advice please


Siren.Tan

Dear all,
Any advice are highly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
I have 10 years working experiences in chemical sector, worked for many high profile companies, now as mid-management, strategy business development role for a UK based material company. Recently my employer decided to sponsor my PARTTiME MBA as potential career progression training.
I have a MSc and PhD from Manchester university and live in Manchester.
Manchester business school accept government levy, also 7K cheaper, that reduces the overall bill quite a lot.
Most like I will use the MBA degree at my current employer for a number of years.
However, it doesn’t look good to have three Manchester degrees. Warwick is the other alternative I would like to consider. I do value face to face time during the course, the imperial cause is mostly online. Also, for practical reason, I cannot apply for full time MBA.
To summarise, should I go for Manchester? Does it worth the £25K difference for me to go for Warwick? Thanks a lot!

This all comes down to goals. The bigger the progression you want, the more you need to invest. I would also consider management level degrees that are fully funded, which many schools have for UK employees, like the Manchester  MSc in management practice, and Executive MBAs at Lancaster, Birmingham and Warwick.

Hi Roberto,Just for info. Manchester is going to have face to face class for full-time MBA programme of 2020/2021. They're going to release the info up to Friday.Although in different context, I'm deciding between Warwick and Manchester. Face to face classes and flexibility (12,15 or 18 months) is really an advantage of AMBS.

That sounds odd to me. Manchester and Durham were the first universities to say they will be online only next semester for undergraduate teaching. I would be surprised if the MBA went ahead face to face. https://www.manchester.ac.uk/coronavirus-applicants-update/

Yesterday I had an interview with the head of department... According her, the starting date will be postponed to December and face to face classes will start in January/2021. AMBS intends to communicate offer holders soon. It will be applied for full-time MBA only. Let's see if it happens.
Cheers
