Hi Nikhil,

As far as MBA is concerned, fees will be bit high in UK.So roughly you will be investing more than 10k as fees(bottom most univ).So when you are investing a big sum you should invest on right area.Most of the top tier univ may offer you Msc or MIB with your present level.......So I won't suggest you to get an MBA from poor univ.......Becoz brand name is important for MBA........Why cant you consider after gaining some exp....Or else if it is more urgent than you could think in doing in your home town.........

If you are not satisfied with this reply then update me.....I will try to help you.......

So you are an entrepreneur........Fine...Try in Hult.......
Read "where to do MBA in england-forum title "(written by sharantoa)......Make it fast.........Quality wise it is good but bit expensive...

Other than Hult you got two options......A branded Msc degree from top B-schools like oxbridge,cass,strath or a MBA from an inferior university.........Decide and come back......Can you able to finish GMAT and IELTS in next few months?If yes I think your good GMAT can negotiate for your weaker areas............

Try to approach an education consultancy......I think they can help you a lot......Normally I don't suggest....But in your case so much of home work has to be done........So on behalf of you they will explore.......

To neita,

The very basic question arises when ever I see these sort of queries is....... why people want to take decisions in haste.One way I am happy to see the enthusiasm shown by you...But my very basic question is "are you putting your efforts,money etc in right direction?"Personally can you able to give justification for your investment......?...I am not commenting on any univ.But how about your post employment?Can you able to sell your MBA with your present exp....If you have a good family back up ( as in the case of previous guy) and if you are confident enough then you can proceed........and personally I don't have much ideas on these univ...Any way my best wishes

hi Uday,

You already done a MBA.Why you want to do it again?.I agree that there is some quality variations but wont you be bored in studying same papers ?.If you think UK as your work destiny, you can get the same HSMP visa with your present PG degree..rather than investing again.

It is true that some people in UK who had done their Full time MBA program go for Exe.MBA program again....But the story differs with your case..

If you are not satisfied with my reply, then

1.UK universities agree without IELTS provided your mode of studying during school and college should be English.
2. If you are not too specific on accreditations like AMBA etc then you can pursue for LSBF...I think your IIPM-MBA and LSBF MBA are equal...
3.No idea on LSC and Cardiff.

As far as jobs are concerned I cant give any guaranty becoz of recession...Still it may take some more time to recover....My suggestion is you got mere 1 yr exp.....With this exp level I think it will be difficult to think on FT ranked univ....I suggest you to gain another three or four yrs of exp with a good GMAT and IELTS posts...That may help you to achieve your desires....

MBA is closely linked with Branding....From your explanation I think your past MBA looks inferior product...Why you want to buy another inferior product for a big sum.........Just for the sake of brand "UK"....Think twice...

If you are not convinced I would suggest you try for HULT...I think they offer some MBA programs for less exp students...I think some where I read in this forum...Search and get it...

And you have not told me about your UG and exp profile

Cardiff MBA is just for Indian students only.......................over 3/4 intake are indians...For those who think they can meet up some friends who come from other countries. I am sorry that you will be disappointed from this. Moreover, those teaching courses are not practical and I find that I have wasted my time to pursue my MBA there...

If the school fee is too cheap then I doubt the quality of the programme. You should check the university ranking of UWIC before you apply it and I think it is almost in 90 something out of the UK schools. I afraid that it may not help for your future career and you should try to select one which at least in the top 30.

Hi if you have 4 years of experience then i would suggest you to opt for an FT ranked B-School (the fees will start from 22K + ) but if you can not afford then atlease you should look for an AMBA accredited B-School. there is no point doing from a pvt college in London if you are seriously concern about your career.
