MBA general or MSc in manufacturing management


Xffg_011

Hello All,



Profile: 6 years in Manufacturing industry as manufacturing engineer



Goal: employability in the UK after master program in manufacturing factory or consulting firm in operations excellence field.



Is MBA from universities like Bath SOM, Birmingham, Aston is good path or MSc in Engineering and management in manufacturing at Cranfield and MSc in intelligent manufacturing at WMG is good path?



I searched in the LinkedIn. General MBA in the above mentioned school I cannot find people working in the UK in manufacturing. MSc from Cranfield and WMG good amount of alumni into manufacturing companies inside Uk as manufacturing engineers.



Which path is more favourable for a sponsorship job in the UK?



thanks in advance for the reply

There's a thread somewhere discussing WMG. Most people will be better off attending programmes that are designed for full-time students. WMG focuses on training for employees, and it doesn't have notable career services support. A specialised MSc or MEng will be better than a general management MBA for the roles you are taregetting.

Thanks StuartHE but with 6 yrs of exp is it too old to do a MSc program rather than a MBA?

No, only in the case of a MiM in general management does age matter. For a business function, an MSc is quite acceptable.
