Master in International Business (MIB)


Hello, I'd like to have some advice.
I have been accepted by some UK Universities for postgraduate education, but I don't have a clear idea on which one I should choose for my MSc. Here they are:

1) University of Lincoln - International Business
2) Robert Gordon University - International Business
3) Edinburgh Napier University - International Business Management
4) Sheffield Hallam University - International Business Management

I know they are pretty average, but that's the best I can pick.
Thanks in advance

Hi,
All these universities are at same level and are considered to be an average universities. so if you are going for an average university than i would recommend you to opt for location near London as it will help you in finding work opportunities after your studies.
what is your profile in terms of grades and Work Exp?

thank you for your advice!
the point is that I don't wanna go to study in London. I want to be 100% focused on my studies next year and London is a city full of "dangerous distractions"...if you know what I mean.
So I am looking for a pretty good university in a smaller and more quiet city.
in fact, I have already cut off from my original list all the unis in the biggest uk and european cities.
I think I'm gonna choose between Robert Gordon and Edinburgh Napier. it wouldn't be a drama staying and finding a job there after graduation, anyway.

My profile:
- BSc in Economics in an italian University
- My final grade is the equivalent of something between the 2:1 and the 2:2
- IELTS 7
- 1 year of work experience as a Sales Manager Assistant

now I have a question for you: why do you say that studying nearby London would increase the chances of getting a job?
is this so important?
shouldn't the recruiters look at your abilities and qualities (and also at university rankings of course) rather than the city where you studied in?
how can an average university in London be better than a good university elsewhere?

Hi,
I mean that the universities you have mentioned are all average and are more of less on same platform. Officially there is no Ranking System in the UK, however lot of league tables publish rankings and these ranking are based on different parameters.
As you will be studying a business related course, hence if you study in big city link London or Birmingham, you will have more exposure because the university professors in big cities are well connected with industry, whereas professors in small towns are purely academic. Also most of the recruitment companies are based in London, and you need to apply for jobs while you are studying. If you are studying quite far from London then it will be difficult for you to travel to London every time for interviews etc, and if you are in London or Birmingham then you will have access to plenty of opportunities.
However if you opt for good (A+) rated university in the UK then location barrier does not play much role, because then you will get a brand name of your university with you.
