If you want to work in the UK you'll be much more successful if you attend an MBA accredited by AMBA, which has accredited the top third of UK business schools. At most of them you'll need three years work experience before you arrive, but come schools have some flexibility on that -- especially schools in Scotland (where undergraduate degrees are four years rather than three).

Coventry has an MBA aimed at freshers, with no work experience.Their students have career outcomes very similar to undergraduates.

As long as you earn over 30K, the work permit is pretty straight forward.

Duncan's right. One thing to note is that you can still get a work visa after your MBA program, but you have to have a job lined up by the time you graduate.

That means doing an MBA program at an accredited school, and then hitting the ground running, with networking, hands-on projects with firms you want to work in, etc.

It's also one of the reasons why UK schools with internships in the middle of the course, like London and Manchester, continue to do well.

Hi,

I hail from India, i have 2.5 yrs of work experience. I have done my B.com from india but i happened to loose couple of papers but however i have cleared it all now with an upper second class (58%)...


i have couple of apprehensions and criteria for an MBA, could you please advice me accordingly

1. I am 28 years old hence i need to find a program that starts immediately (spring intake if possible)

2. Due to my poor B.Com scores i doubt if i can make it into any of the top ranking colleges (please advice if other wise)

3. I need find a course that is within GBP 18000 since in the present economic condition, getting the return on investment and loan repayment is tricky

4. The University and course should have acceptance in UK and more so globally

I have got an offer from MBA Global Financial Services - Coventry Uni London Campus. This course fits the bill of being cost effective and Spring Intake. And above all the subjects offered seem dynamic and contemporary to the present market needs.

However i am apprehensive about the program's global acceptance and post study employment

Could you advice me here

Obviously you can't get into a good programme that recruits in the spring: it *is* spring, and good programmes have early deadlines. A cheap, unaccredited school that has spaces for a course that starts in a few week's time (indeed a school that recruits five times a year) can't be that good. Good MBAs in the UK require three years' work experience and generally start in the autumn.

If you want a good return on investment, take your GMAT and apply for September. Don't bother with Freshers MBAs like Coventry.
