MBA in Aberdeen or MIM in Edinburgh


Hello,
I am a software engineer in JPMorgan Chase and Co in Hyderabad, India and I have been working for almost three years in the firm. I have passed out with Computer Science and Engineering degree from NIT Durgapur in 2019 with a CGPA of 8.5.
I have applied to quite a few universities in UK for either MBA or MIM course for Fall 2022 intake and till now I have received offer for MIM (MSc in Management - general) from University of Edinburgh and Durham University, MBA in Aberdeen University and interview call from Cranfield School of Management.
Kindly help me out in choosing the universities depending on the job prospects after graduation. I do not want to continue in Software engineering anymore hence the shift to Management. Might be okay with Tech Management or Product Management after graduation and keen towards People Management. I want to work for a couple of years in abroad before coming back to India as I do not want to settle in abroad.
I feel MBA will be helpful for me in the long run if I want to start a business of my own but I am unsure because Edinburgh is a very good university.
Kindly help me out

The FT ranking shows percent employed. Why not look there? 

Discount the University of Aberdeen. Stick to schools with two or three of the 'triple crown'. 

Also consider Ireland. The economy has been going great there.

Hi, I agree Ireland's economy is doing very well but it is a small country.

Cranfield is not really known by a lot of people but is MBA is really famous and has a very good reputation. Especially for older generations (and they are the ones in senoir management positions atm) ;)

If you are only looking for one job, then the size of the country doesn't matter. What matters is the demand for your sort of talent, the supply of it, and the regulatory barriers. Ireland has a lower unemployment rate than London, for example.

@duncan that's true, the dynamics of the local economy is far more important. Follow the advice from @duncan then! 1f642
PS: But Cranfield is a really good school for its MBA.
