I'm making a decision to do a full time MBA at Manchester or City U London. Am currently working in an asset management firm in Hong Kong. Am prepared to work in the same industry in Hong Kong post MBA. If you were me, which one would you pick?and why? Please kindly help. Thanks.

Both have specialist electives for Finance
Both schools are triple accredited
Both Universities are prestigious, its going to be tough one..

If i was you, i would go for Cass Business School, London
- Since London is financial capital of world, i think one would get more opportunities to Network in London during MBA
- Post MBA,I think Brand Dividend of Cass MBA can be better than Manchester MBA
- I would prefer 12 months MBA than 18 Months( Manchester)
- Cass MBA fee is also less than Manchesters

Hi Duncan,

I was born in HK, planning to do an MBA overseas. Do you have any comment regarding the two programmes. Thanks.

Not many vacancies in HK will be recruited for at Cass or Manchester. Manchester has some huge advantages: the internship will allow you to test out a potential employer. More time for electives will allow you to drill deeper into the edes of knowledge. The project emphasis will build your soft skills. The international exchange could allow you to get into another market, like the Americas, and build yur network more widely.

However, Cass is in the City - surrounded by the asset management industry. Since you are not changing career then that's probabaly as good a bet. Manchester will be a richer, and more challenging experience. Cass is the simple choice.

Even so, surely most hiring for HK happens in the region? HKUST, the London-HKU or Columbia-HKU tracks and perhaps NUS and INSEAD in Singapore would be on my list as well.
