Orhan

Hello,
I received offer of a place for MBA at Birmingham and Edinburgh. I need an advice about which one to choose. Birmingham is a little bit cheeper. But I am leaning towards Edinburgh.

Thank you

Yes, Edinburgh MBA alumni do better, partly because of the school's stronger focus on finance, IT and consulting. That's also the consensus at: http://www.find-mba.com/boardsearch/63/q/Birmingham+Edinburgh

Duncan,

I knew they have very strong profile in Finance and IT as well as Financial Engineering but the MBA curriculum seems fairly spread out like a general management program

Yes. That's why I didn't say that their MBA has a focus on these things, but rather than the school does: those are the organisations that is focusses on building up recruiter relationships with.

After these posts, I am begining to feel a little bit confused. If Edinburgh MBA seems to be a general management program. What is specific feature of Birmingham MBA? and which one is better?

The Birmingham MBA has three tracks. Take a look at http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/business/mba/courses/index.aspx

Edinburgh MBA alumni have better outcomes.

Go for Edinburgh, it is much better than Birmingham whether its curriculum, faculty (specially Finance and Marketing) or post mba job prospects. Further Edinburgh is a financial centre of Scotland and finding jobs there are much easier as compared to most of the other parts in UK.

I think Birmingham is better for marketing. They have great marketing faculty there.
