MBA on basis of ACCA


Faraan

Hello.. i have completed 11 papers of ACCA as well as have submitted my thesis for Bsc Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes university. The result of the thesis will come out at the end of March . I have NO work experience. I am interested in doing MBA from UK. How many universities will accept me for their MBA programme. Further more is it a wise decision? Thanks

Congratulations. That's a good programme.

Most unaccredited, low-value UK universities will offer you a place on the condition that you pass your degree. But I recommend you go instead to an accredited business school, and take an MSc in management or finance.

Take a look at

Why freshers' MBAs are worse than MiM degrees from better schools http://www.find-mba.com/board/38133

Which MSc's are better than pre-experience 'Freshers' MBAs? www.find-mba.com/board/22783

Given your respected accounting qualification, I strongly recommend you look at these programmes, which will lead to salaries much higher than a freshers' MBA: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2013

Thanks Duncan. So what I can gather from your advice is that for non experienced students an MSc from a reputable business school is better than an MBA from a low value university at this stage? I have always been made to believe that an MBA is much more valuable than MSc as MBA is a more privileged degree

An MBA is better than an MSc from the same school. However, an HEC Paris MSc has a average salary of $93k http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-finance-pre-experience-2013 and that is more than 16 of the top 100 MBAs in the world http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/global-mba-ranking-2014

An MSc from top school is worth much more an MBA from a poor school.
