MBA in the UK


Hi guys,
I'm a minning civil engineer that is looking for a MBA to study, I have been reading about lots of universities and different MBAs, finally for a cost (investment) and duration I have been narrowing the search to UK. I'm from Chile and I'm looking for and MBA that gives me a better opportunity to work outside my country, of course renown universities should give a much better chance (Oxford, Stanford, LBS, etc), however for a costs stand of view I'm looking for good MBAs with a lower cost that I can pay with my savings and don't require for me to sell one of my kidnies, Anyway, I have been looking at Edinburgh University, Durham, Bath, Cranfield and Warwick, the first two are cheaper, but looking at this post "https://find-mba.com/board/general-forum/best-mbas-for-international-students-placement-35651" I saw that Cranfield and Warwick has better employment rate for international students, even if they are more expensive maybe it's worth the shot, well I would love to hear some opinions from all of you, thanks.

These are very appropriate school and, indeed, Cranfield and Warwick are good options for you.

A client of mine visited them both earlier this month. Warwick's new extension gives it the facilities it long needed, and the cohort felt like a better fit. Cranfield's four-term structure was very attractive because of the far better educational experience, and its deeper executive education insight makes it a more development experience.

Looking at the FT ranking, Cranfield gets higher salaries and the students feel more of their aims have been achieved. However, Warwick's students rate its careers services more highly, they get into work more quickly and make more career progress.

Personally, I feel these differences reflect the ways the schools brand themselves. Cranfield is more the sort of place where slightly more mature candidates go to develop both hard and soft skills; Warwick is more a place for hungrier people.

Thanks for your answer Duncan, from a life cost stand point, is there much difference between cities or is more or less the same?, I'm considering this too because I'm going to take my wife with me, thanks.

These are both campus universities and, considering the intense nature of the MBA, you should try to find on-campus accommodation. My feeling is that Cranfield will have more of that available. Coventry, the city near Warwick, and Milton Keynes, the city near Cranfield, are probably similar in costs.
