MBA for Engineer with Aerospace Experience


Krish123

Hi
I have 11 yrs of Aerospace/Aircraft industry experience after my Master's in Engineering. I am working as Aircraft structural analysis engineer in the UK for the past 5 years. I am thinking of doing full-time MBA starting sep.2017. I am not thinking of GMAT at the minute.
Post-MBA, I would like to get into a managerial role with an Engineering Industry preferably in an Airline Industry thereby steadily moving to Senior Management & Leadership roles.
Thinking of Lancaster, Durham, and Bradford (I know Bradford is not accepting applications for the year 2017). Please suggest me any other B-shools which will be suitable for my profile.
Thanks a lot

Toulouse and Cranfield come to mind. Why not take the GMAT?

Thank you Duncan for your reply.
I could take GMAT. I need some time for preparation. By the time I write my GMAT say around June, deadlines for 2017/2018 in most B-schools would have finished.

Thank you Duncan for your reply.
I went through the admission requirements of Toulouse business school. Surpirsingly, they do not require GMAT. But looks like they have good tie-ups with all major aricraft industries.
Also looks like they do not have much scholarships. Since I am self funded, I would expect to get atleast partial scholarship. Cranfield on the other hand, doesn't have much scholarships either. They have good tie-ups with IT and finance companies, not sure of manufacturing.
I am also wondering, whether I could do any executive or part-time MBA.
Please let me know if you have any suggestion.
Thanks a lot again for your advice.

A part-time or executive MBA has a lot of advantages, and you'd be a better candidate for an EMBA than a full-time MBA. However, you should expect to have to pay for an investment that will get you such big rewards. It would be a false economy to limit yourself to schools that offer you scholarships: The sad facts about scholarships http://www.find-mba.com/board/37055

Thank you Duncan. That was an eye-opener.
Having said that I have only core engineering/Technical experience so far in my career, will I be considered for EMBA? Any views on this.
Cheers

Duncan, what your thoughts on Aston Business school? Why I am asking is Birmingham is one of the hubs in the UK which is the home for many engineering organisations. So plenty of opportunities will be there.

Thanks

I cannot think of anything to say about Aston that you cannot see by searching the board.
