MBA or MSc


Abhinav M
Hey..
I am a graduate from India. I did BBA (bachelor of business administration) in International Business from India from a reputed university. I am planning to do my masters in the UK but am confused on what to take " A masters degree in International Business/Marketing or an MBA " So please do help me on that.

I do not have years of work experience but have few months of internship experience (and please do not suggest me to work as I have no plan on working as of now)

so if Msc (masters) please do suggest me the best Universities in London if possible, with accreditation (AMBA) so as to take my admissions.
And Freshers MBA or Freshers MSc which does give us a good job with pay after the degree
I will be more than happy

Regards

A Freshers MBA will not help you find work in the UK. Not will most degrees with International or Global in the title: they are often light on quant skills and aimed at preparing students to return to their own country.

Focus on the schools in the FT MSc ranking with high employment.

In the UoL, that means MiM degrees at LBS, Cass and the LSE.

Thanks, Ducan
So Msc it is, but could you let me know the universities which have a January 2019 intake for MSc or pass me down the link on the top universities which gives admission to freshers for MSc course for Jan.
I would rather avoid the ivy leagues

You'll have to do your own research. January starts are very rare in the UK, with the exception of the former polytechnics.

Obviously no school in Europe takes part in the Ivy League. If you want to go to a cheap, easy school in the UK then its MiM will probably not lead to work here.

If you did a BBA you may be better off taking an MiM in another country designed for people with such relevant degrees. A MiM aimed at converting non business graduates might replicate too much of your BBA classes and not teach you much beyond cross cultural soft skills.

I didn't mean cheap, but a university which provides as you said to lead to work there. There are tons of universities from which its pretty hard to find out. So if you get a lead let me know

Other than the schools I have mentioned and the ones mentioned in the post I linked to, there are no other MIM options that will (be likely to) meet your goals. The alternative is the schools in the FT masters in finance ranking.

What are your goals? The Brunel program is in the bottom part of the ranking if you sort by "Aims Achieved..."

For international mobility it does a little better, even edging out higher ranked UK schools like Bradford and Durham, so it's got that going for it.

But network wise, it definitely won't have the same stature as a higher ranked school, like Imperial, Warwick, etc. (I'm sure you realize that.)

Hey, Larry
As I have mentioned. I have just a few years of internship experience. I planned on doing an MBA but for a fresher AMBA or EQUIS accredited universities do not provide admission. So I might as well thought of doing a Masters in International Business or Management as it connects most of its course as in MBA and provides me more theoretical knowledge as a fresher and after most of the research I ended up at some universities which have good Masters (MSc) with January 2019 intake.
1. Brunel University (FT ranking)
2.Anglia Ruskin (TIMES ranking)
3.Hertfordshire (QS Ranking)
4.Queen Mary Uni London (Times Ranking) (Is there a Jan Intake)

( P.s. and would like to do a job as well in the UK or any other )
But if you have any suggestions please let me know and after graduation with a few years in a managerial field (internationally), I would like to go back to my home country to run my family business. I think this gives you an insight into my requirements
Please do enlighten me with your thoughts.

Regards

Why aren't you considering better schools? If you want to work in the UK after graduation, this level of school is not the most ideal route.

Yeah maybe you didn't understand, the much better schools do need a work experience and some schools (with Msc) take admission on September. I graduated from a UG course this year (August), I would not like to waste my few months for the September intake. Rather doing this course and getting into a job for experience as I have a family business to look for.
And
MR. Duncan No, I am just 20 and not yet ready and prepared for a marriage.LOL

It makes no sense to start in January if no good options start then. Work for a year and start in September. This is an investment with a lifetime of payback. Go to a world class business school, not an embarrassment.

Yes, in that case I would suggest just taking a couple of months, working for the family business, and then apply for fall intake. Doesn't make sense to compromise if there's nothing else stopping you from going to a better school.
