I am a 35 year old applicant from India. I have done my undergrad from DMU, UK back in 2006 in Business Studies (BA Hons) where I got 2:2. Since then I have accumulated 10+ years of experience in managerial roles; both in the business my family owns as well as working for others in India.
I now wish to study further. In my work ex I have largely handled marketing campaigns and communications. I have also teamed up on some documentaries and creative projects as a consultant. Over time I have realized my interest leans towards films & media, creative campaigns, pitching and so forth.
I wish to start my studies again as early as January 2021. I also don't come with a lavish study budget. So I have been able to narrow done my course choices to either applying for an MBA at Brunel or Kingston. Also I am highly inclined towards the MSc Management course at Brunel which includes a placement year too. I would love to keep myself as close to London as possible so that I am better able to network and find myself a job in media in middle management after my degree. I want to take advantage of the 2 year stay back option rolled out by the government recently.
Kindly share your thoughts on Brunel or Kingston and also whether at my age would an MSc be a good choice? The Brunel MSc offers a pathway into Digital Entrepreneurship and Creativity Management which is why it highly interests me. I do not see any such pathways with MBA programs. The Covid-19 pandemic makes me feel people with specialized knowledge stand a better chance going forward. However if you guys feel an MBA, even if general, is the better choice then kindly share your thoughts and reasons for it.
Also please let me know whether accreditation matters for an MSc when applying for jobs.
Other university suggestions are welcome too.
I apologise for the really long post.
Thanks in advance
