MBA in London


garuka

Hi All,
I'm looking for a part-time/executive MBA program in London.
These are my requirements:
MBA has to be part-time/executive
Should start January 2010 (early 2010.)
Course fee has to be less than £20,000
Should have a good recognition. Both local and international
Course should be conducted in London (greater London area)


Here come my qualifications
BSc in IT - Curtin Uni of Technology - Australia - 2006
BSc (Hons) in IT - Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology - Sri Lanka - 2007
Member of British Computer Society since 2006

Those two degrees were part of an internship program. During that time I worked as Trainee Software Developer in a multinational software company. During that time I work 4 days a week full time (32 hours a week) and 5 days a week during vacation period.
After graduation I work as a Software Engineer for the same company for about 1.5 years.
And now I'm in UK and working for another firm as a Software Engineer for the last 6 months.

So what are my options here?

Hi - I doubt a (good) executive program will take you if you just finished school in 2006. Part-time program sounds possible. Lots of MBA options in and around London, but not all of them good. Choose carefully, otherwise you're wasting your money.

Good luck.

exactly....That is why I'm looking for some suggestions.
I did some search and found westminster, midddlesex and greenwich are matching my seach criteria.
But I have no idea about the reputation of them. Also I can't find any other options here too.
So help would be really great since I don't want to waste my time and money for some MBA.

Well, reputation-wise, none of those our outstanding, but not they aren't among the dodgy ones either. Westminster seems the best, both in terms of location and having that AMBA accreditation. And that's one I had actually heard of in my time living and working in London.

London is huge man so we have to take into account what you are exactly.

Also you make some money now ( that is why you go for the part-time) why not spend a bit more cash?

Warwick: 1 hour from London many flexible courses
Cambridge and Oxford have some part-time courses ( not strictly MBA) but the brand name is tempting

Also look for foregin schools offering mba in London. Grenoble ( from France) is a decent choice cheap and triple accreditation, well ranked, offered by a local college.

Chicago as well. Look further mate

If i were you i will wait a couple of years to do a proper MBA. MBA in essence is not a vocational course which teach you a specific skillset. It helps you making sense of your working experience, and providing you with a broad range of knowledge to become an effective manager.

I would say part-time is a good choice because you can always comeback to the teacher and say why dooesnt it work at my place? how should i go to implement what you taught me?

The difference between a good and bad MBA is the teacher will either have both the theory and practice, he invented the theory saw how it works and have acted as a consultant for business and industry. He will then go and say, well son, i once worked for XYZ and we had a French guy ............., or we went to Italy and it is so corrupted to we had to .....,

Bad teacher does not have all of that, he did not invent the theory, he did not see how it works in practice, because anybody can teach an introductory course in any domain right? Intoduction to Nuclear power is not that difficult and neither is Intro to negotiation or intro to financial mathematics.

donho199 ,
Well I'm working on the city of london. (east side to be specific) till 5.30pm so going out from london during weekday evenings is not going to be easy task. And I'm looking for a program starts on January 2010.

about grenoble. It is offered by LSBF and I read several posts on this site stating that it is not a very good one.

Chicago doesn't start the course until June 2010 and of course £69000 is to expensive. I can apply for LBS which is much more cheaper.

I really don't have anything against Warwick. My only concern is it's reputation? I may need someone explain that to me.

Please post your suggestions

Because let me be honest with you 20 grand for an EMBA doesnt buy you a very good one.

Warwick is very good and always among top 10 in the UK regradless of what ever you get from there. The uni is top 10, the business school is top 10 and the MBA is also top 10 so the reputation is pretty good and for that money i think it is the best you can buy.

I have heard about that European school actually but i dont know anyone personally been there. But I came across at least one CEO of top 500 companies or something and he graduated from there, a german guy and a german company. Of course, that tells you nothing about the quality of the school.

Well I heard about that program before.
But clearly there is a diffrence between a college and a uni. Staff, facilities and all the aspects.
That is why I have a big doubt about attending to a college rather than uni. MBA normally shape the persons but I really doubt that course conducted by college can do that in same level as in uni.
Comments are welcome

As up to date, the lecturers are responsible and tutors are very helfpul. I always satisfy with the teaching quality and the facilities which I have paid for. In fact it is beyond my expectation. I agree with your quote 'MBA normally shape the persons', but it is also depend on houw much effort you have contributed. In short, I would said that the course is worth for money, I am pretty sure that I will definitely get what I want. Just sharing of my experience.
