MSc entrepreneurship at Bristol Vs Strathclyde Vs Uni of Edinburgh


kuncy

Hi.


I recieved offer for MSc entrepreneurship at Bristol, Strathclyde & Uni of Edinburgh. I know its an unusual course with literally nil job prospects. MBA never enticed me. I consider this MSc as an alternative MBA, as it is quite practical. I received a scholarship also from strathclyde.





Bristol and strathclyde's course contents are quite good. Uni of Edinburgh's course has employment prospects with consultants which i got to know after chatting with students via linkedin.





I prefer Edinburgh because Edinburgh addresses the employability risk also unlike other two. Next is Bristol because of its good global ranking, city life, ease of access to london, if i get a scholarship(fees is too high). Issues with strathclyde is its poor global ranking and nil employment prospects. All 3 Unis have excellent entrepreneurial ecosystem.





which one should i go for?? Any advice??

You'll have to pick within those, and go more narrowly, to get useful guidance. 
- New Venture  creation/ Almost no-one is hiring new venture creators

- Project management/ Whar sort of projects? Take a look at Project and programme management MSc's. Would you like to do that in the banking IT space?
 
- Business analysis/ Do you mean business systems analysis and design, as in IT and workflows? There are some great MSc's in that. Or might you mean equity analysis?  Would you like to do that in the banking IT space?

-Consulting/ There are several forms of consulting. Would you like to do that in the banking IT space?


Take a look at Linkedin Jobs for UK jobs in those fields that ask for an MSc. What MSc do they ask for?

Both degrees are practical, and I generally don't see this as an either/or situation.

If you have at least 5-6 years of work experience, an accredited MBA will offer better career outcomes, and those that are more in line with somebody who has that level of experience. If you're an experienced professional looking at MSc programs, you should weigh the ROI, based on the expected salary outcomes.
