Anna University grads with MBAs in the UK are highly likely to be alumni of the following universities, many of which don't require work experience:
# The University of Sheffield
# Cardiff University
# University of Nottingham - Nottingham University Business School
# Coventry University
# University of Wales, Cardiff
# Staffordshire University
# University of Aberdeen
# University of Bradford
# University of Greenwich.

What's interesting about that list is that these are students who are *still* in the UK, working with firms like Tata, IBM, Verit, HP, Infosys and Cognizant (mostly Indian firms).

However, Anna University graduates in the USA, for example, tend to have gained their MBAs at:
# Northeastern University
# University of Massachusetts, Amherst
# Northwestern University - Kellogg School of Management
# The University of Chicago - Booth School of Business
# University of Phoenix
# University of Michigan - Stephen M. Ross School of Business
# The University of Texas at Arlington

Those US schools are generally much stronger (especially once Phoenix is removed) and, while those graduates will have waited to get more work experience before getting into MBAs, they will have had much better outcomes. Their top employers are Cognizant, Cisco, Microsoft, Infosys, Tata, Oracle, Wipro, IBM and HP (a good balance of US and Indian firms). The Anna alumni working for the US firms tend to have MBAs from Michigan, Carnegie Mellon University or various campuses of the University of California.

Either way, these universities seem to be open to recruiting graduate students from Anna University.

Hi If you are looking for USA i believe there are some good universities offering MBA for freshers but for admission in USA you would require 4 years of education after 10+2 and also a good GMAT score. Let me know if you have 4 years of Degree and if you have not yet appeared for GMAT then you can take GMAT by Dec and see if you are able to score well (600+) then you can try for good b-school in USA without Work-exp.

Obviously MBA with Work Experience will be better then Without Workexp, but it also depends on yoru requirements.

Take the time to get into the best MBA you can do: those are the schools which demand 3+ years of work experience and strong GMAT scores: those are also the programmes with the best placement records and scholarship funds (especially the US universities). The RoI is much better on the strongest programmes.

Hi Mazumder,.. Aberdeen MBA is a good program (if you compare with other MBAs in UK with no work exp.) however this does not guarantee placement after your course. If you are looking for placements in UK i would suggest you to opt for MSc program from a high ranked university but it also depends on your grades and skills. Please can you tell me more about your profile..

MBA from UK is giving good advice. With work experience, take an accredited MBA; if that's not possible take an MSc at a ranked business school.

It is not the case that none, or even few, of the top MSc programmes will accept students with undergraduate degrees in business. At the MSc programme ranked top by the FT, at the HSG, you'll see it's actually aimed at people with bachelors in business: http://www.unisg.ch/en/Studium/Master/StrategyAndInternationalManagement/FrequentlyAskedQuestions.aspx

The FT's top MSc programmes (http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2011) are without exception a better and wiser investment than an unranked, unaccredited pre-experience MBA. The students, experience and outcomes will be much better.
