The schools with the best outcomes are the ones in the FT rankings. Durham and Lancaster are the only Global 100 ranked schools on your list (ranked 19th and 27th in Europe, respectively, by the FT's European Business School ranking's MBA column.). Strathclyde and Birmingham are joint 29th. Since Strathclyde alumni earn more, and Strathclyde has a better oil and gas alumni network, I would suggest that (unless you want to retake your GMAT).

Duncan,
Thank you so much for the reply. Can you also shed some light on Nottingham MBA and how it is?
I am also applying for Manchester. Can you rate my changes for Manchester MBA as I have less GMAT score than their average.
Is there also any chances for Cass or Warwick with this GMAT score?
Your reply will help me immensely.
Thnx.

Nottingham has an unremarkable, slowly improving, MBA with poor prospects for alumni aiming for MBA-level roles in the UK. 

I see no prospects [of admission] for you at Bayes (I think you can't have researched it well if you still call it Cass) or Warwick (for which you'd need 640 or higher). 

Manchester is a much better school generally than Strathclyde but if Lancaster declined you then the rest of your application is probably not strong enough for Manchester.

I think Nottingham is only a good choice if you pick the campus in Malaysia and want to work there. Alternatives to consider at Cranfield, Edinburgh and (if you want to stay in energy) RGU or Glasgow.

That looks good to be but, honestly, there's no point aiming at Nottingham. You'd be better off taking an MSc in operations, logistics or SCM at a FT-ranked school (Imperial, Manchester, Cranfield, Durham, Bayes and Lancaster have strong MSc degrees or elective SCM pathways) than an MBA at Nottingham.

Leeds is weaker at the MBA than the MiM, and is slipping https://rankings.ft.com/schools/140/leeds-university-business-school/rankings/2858/european-business-school-rankings-2020/ranking-data Its is certainly a worse choice for most students than Strathckyde or Birmingham.

Take a look at https://find-mba.com/schools/uk-ireland/uk/birmingham/discussions and come back with a more specific question. If you want to work in the UK, I don't think their MBA is a better choice than an MSc at a better school.

If you read these posts on the thread above, I more or less rank their MBAs in the same order as the MBA column on the FT European ranking.
