MBA - Brunel, Kingston or UEA


C J
Hi,

Which one to consider for MBA - Brunel, Kingston or UEA?

Criteria:
- Better employment prospects in the UK (i am from uk)
- Better value internationally i.e working in Europe
- Affordability (price range 20-33k)

I am considering these as the above are January start and have some accreditation. Is there any good Europe schools that i should consider i.e January starts. Having a degree with double accreditation instead of a triple accreditation what difference it can make for job prospects.

Personally Kingston seems to me a better choice as its double accreditation, 1 consultancy project and can extend coursework in bloomberg trading room to an additional diploma however i have read to avoid kingston and give preference to Brunel in some posts, not really why's that. Brunel MBA doesn't have any consultancy projects or the option to gain an extra diploma. The UEA option seems to be not double accredited but seems its a well ranked university overall and offers two consultancy projects in the MBA.

I am not too sure so please let me know.

Lastly is it better to wait till September for triple accredited schools if triple accreditation is that important or would even double accreditation be well valued for employment prospects. I am looking at consultancy management/engineering management career prospects after the MBA.

Thank you.

Triple accreditation won't add much. Significantly more important is the overall ranking / reputation of the school.

I don't think this level of school would be a great choice for a consulting career, and none will have much weight outside the UK. At this level of investment it seems to me an either / or thing: if you want a degree that carries weight in mainland Europe you should probably study in the specific country you're interested in.

Maybe consider holding back a year and saving up to afford something better? Even something like Lancaster would be a much better option, and for a UK resident would provide loans and most likely decent scholarship funding.
