Navya1993
Hi,
Iam looking to apply for MBA in UK for 4 of them. Iam a fresh graduate from an engineering background and l wanted to apply for MBA in HRM due to the opportunity i got after my under graduate course.

I have few internships experience which i know might not be helpful at all.

The universities are :
University of Aberdeen
Edinburg Naiper University
Cardiff Business School
Birhimgham city university


Iam confused as to choose which one.
Please give me advice on how to proceed with the above options.

Would appreciate if you could suggest me of any other college based on my criteria too!

If you want to work in the UK then do not take a freshers MBA. Instead you will need an MSc with CIPD accreditation.

Of the four your name, only Cardiff has an international accreditation, from AACSB.

Search this discussion board for CIPD.

Also read the articles on my profile page about MSc degrees and freshers MBAs.

I think this depends on your goals. I think most students will be better off attending an internationally accredited business school. Cardiff has AACSB accreditation, and that is a strong sign of quality. Cardiff is a notable school (See http://www.eduniversal-ranking.com/business-school-university-ranking-in-united-kingdom.html) but I think most students will have a better experience, a stronger alumni network and a better grounding in HRM is they take an CIPD-accredited MSc at a top school like Warwick, Manchester or the LSE.

Non-accredited business schools are always a crap shoot. There might be some that are ok, but they always carry risks: best of all you might come away with a sub-par education, or worse, you could actually get scammed.

An accredited MBA program will mitigate these risks, since international accreditation ensures a minimum level of teaching and program quality.

Not to mention that an accredited MBA program—which, at least for AMBA, will require three years of work experience—will most likely have better brand awareness and career services, regardless of where you want to work, versus a school that's not accredited.

I strongly agree with this. Given the choice between an accredited MSc and an unaccredited MBA, I have never recommended an unaccredited MBA. The only grey zone for me is a school that is a couple of years away from accreditation. A good example of that is Nottingham Trent. It has rebooted its MBA with a new leader and has good selection criteria. It does not have the employer relationships of accredited schools around the same price. But, if you really cannot get into an accredited MBA (and very few students with the right work experience cannot get in somewhere) then that is a compromise to consider, especially for older candidates who might feel out of place in an MSc or freshers MBA.
