I don't think either of these is very good. Given the choice between studying at eslsca or at Cardiff Met (as UWIC is now called) I would choose eslsca. But as locally-delivered programmes the support might be very weak in Egypt. You need to speak to people who have taken those courses in Egypt.

I think you mean Cardiff Metropolitain University, not Cardiff University. I would speak to students and visit classes in Cairo. It is impossible to make an abstract judgment because none of these are very good programmes.

why people are just talking negative about this top ranked university who the hell says its a inferior university
1 firstly do a vast research about it and than comment

someone said hult is a better option are you insane
cardiff University has its own business school
Its in the Russell Group
People say it does not have a AMBA LOL even university like stanford does not have it
I personally know people have graduated from cardiff and are working in well reputed universities
It has got EQUIS and AASCB which is pretty enough
They are not charging much
Course structure is way better than the ones who are AMBA accreditated what else you need
stop misguiding people its a good university look at the ranking its enough of an evidence

Calling people insane doesn't help you to persuade people.

Cardiff's a strong British university with an MBA that is inferior to those:
- in the respected rankings
- with AMBA and EQUIS accreditation
- which require work experience.

Cardiff doesn't have those things. If it did, it would be in the rankings above Hult. Course structure matters much less to employers than the quality of the cohort and the nature of the experience.

For whom is this bloody Executive MBA meant for it is for all those such oldies and baldies who have experiences of 10 years and the young MBA,s are much more dynamic and professional than these experienced bafoons who are good for nothing.

Ofcourse the course strcture matters its your knowledge and skills that your employer needs. Ok fine even a university like Bradford which is triple accreditated but has very low employability and is also a very low ranked university.
The MBA program was originally started by the USA
are there IVY league universities and B Schools bothered about this so called AMBA by the way do you know who started AMBA in UK. A group of UK students who studied in US B Schools started it in UK.

Cardiff obviously does not have a higher ranking or a higher salary than Bradford. Nor, if your comments are a guide, does it have friends who have learnt to spell.

A couple of points for clarification (for readers of this thread in general)

1. Is this thread referring to Cardiff university or Cardiff Metropolitan University? There is a big difference.

2. Is there a suggestion that AACSB accredited universities are inferior to ones with AMBA and/or EQUIS accreditation?

This thread is about Cardiff University only
CArdiff has both AASCB and EQUIS

Lastly No matter what you say an claim Bradford is a low ranked university go and look at the Ranking first and also do look at the graduate prospects percentage of both the universities even the dumbest can figure out which is the best stupid AMBA is not the only criteria which will decide the ranking and payscale

Cardiff is ranked no 12 in the business studies ranking on the other hand bradford is below 60 even more than that and is not even in the russell group so dnt exagerate no matter what you say the ranking speaks it self and sound minded pople know what is right and wrong

I am sure the other person is referring to Cardiff Business School, which recently obtained AACSB accrediation. Cardiff Business School is a research-centred school which runs a "freshers MBA" aimed at students from the developing world with no work experience. It is hugely popular with 350 students (London Business School recruits 400, so it's massive by European standards). Many students are from India and Pakistan; Cardiff's always attracted a lot of Greeks too. Like Bradford, the school has slightly low IELTS requirements (6.5). Indeed, Cardiff even has subject-specific English-language support through the year for students. It does not need the GMAT.

I would love to see a ranking in which the Cardiff MBA is ranked above the Bradford one: that would be amusing. Cardiff is good for pre-experience courses and for research. Being in the Russell Group of reseach universities does not mean you have a world-class MBA: just look at Bristol, Glasgow, Liverpool, LSE, QMW, Queen's, Southampton, York... That requires great MBA students more than it requires great PhD research.

PS For undergraduate business, perhaps Cardiff is 12th and Bradford 60th. But for the MBA, Cardiff would need to ask for work experience to make serious progress in the MBA rankings.

Cardiff is ranked no 12 in the business studies ranking on the other hand bradford is below 60

And what ranking is this? Certainly not any MBA rankings that I'm acquainted with. In terms of the FT Global MBA ranking, Bradford fell of the list this year and as far as I know Cardiff was never ranked.

hello everybody especially Duncan

Well as you said last year Cardiff is not a good option I dropped the idea of going there. Waited for a whole one year to complete my 3 years of work experience.

I applied in a couple of universities this year the MBA offers which I got from the universities are as follows

Brunel, Leicester, Sheffield, Newcastle

Need your sincere suggestion .

Congratulations! These are much better schools. I am just so happy that you have these offers.

Leicester is not so notable, but the other three are good programmes in expanding schools that have new or refurbished buildings. There is no absolute winner between them.

Brunel has a strong core programme design and good careers coaching, but I notice that the TOEFL criteria are a bit weaker there (however, perhaps that's because the London location means they don't have to work so hard and because they have the most experience cohort). I must admit... personally I would be very tempted to chose this course because of the experienced cohort and London location. If employment in the UK was your real focus, I would perhaps aim for Brunel.

Sheffield seems to be on the move up, with triple accreditation and the highest TOEFL requirements, but the programme seems much more academic than developmental and the careers support seems limited. It has a great range of electives. If I wasn't concerned about placement in the UK, I think I would consider Sheffield because of the ability to personalise the curriculum and have a semester-long personal project.

I think Newcastle is still the safest of these programmes, with many of the same strengths as Sheffield. It has a balanced curriculum, and has a good personal development programme. I feel that the school is more business-oriented, and the soft skills element perhaps the best there. I think most students would be better off there.

Thanks for your detailed response. I appreciate your understanding about the business schools in UK. I am still not clear about the Job prospects of students . When I compare your comments with the Top UK University League Tables 2013-14 I get confused. The league table states the employability of Brunel graduates is 57 %which I think is quite low. Whereas that of New Castle is very high around 80%. Though my choice is inclined towards Brunel because of its location but its low employability is what bothers me. After all I do not want to be disappointed and remain unemployed after completing my degree . Please help me inmaking the right choice keeping in view the course structure, job prospects, industry links, soft skills etc and what more should I be looking for in setting my criteria for making a choice. My second concern is that all good schools have a very high MBA fee but it is not so in case of New Castle. Why is it that its fee is so low ,GBP 16 500 , its even lower than that of Cardiff and same as Salford University. This creates a doubt in my mind about the standard of NewCastle university. Am I right ?
