Hi,

It is pretty simple - get international business exposure, study innovation management module which is offered by both and then get back to my country. Newcastle is triple accredited whereas Surrey is double, but on various ranking sources Surrey has better rank than Newcastle. So I am bit confused which one to select having offer from both

I cannot find any ranking at the masters level ranking Surrey above Newcastle. Are you using undergraduate rankings (test: Do they include Oxbridge and LBS?).

Newcastle is certainly better for the MBA. In terms of innovation management, Newcastle's approach is much more about product and service innovation: entrepreneurship, social innovation new technologies etc. Surrey's approach is more about mainstreaming design thinking: so more of a cultural/creativity use of the word innovation.

An excellent comparison is to look at the reading lists for their innovation courses.
