MSc management in MBS/Imperial/CASS ???


frieden

Dear all,

First of all, I'm a computer science graduate and 1.7 years works experience as software engineer in an international telecom company. I got offers from MSc management programme of Imperial, CASS and Manchester Business School. I know there are lots of parameters to consider such as reputation of the university, programme brand, living, accommodation expenses and most importantly job opportunities after graduation. Actually, I am planning to work for maximum 2-3 years after my graduation in U.K or Europe and then return back to my country, although I'm aware that it is very difficult to find a good job since I'm non-EU citizen. U.K government has repealed the legislation about work permit of non-EU citizens and therefore by graduating from a reputable university, I want to increase the possibility of finding a good job. Anyway, as far as I research through internet, Imperial College is a big brand especially in engineering, CASS is really good at finance and MBS has a good reputation in their MBA and MSc management programmes. Manchester has also some advantages because its living accommodation expenses will be much cheaper comparing to London and it is second biggest city in U.K. However, I will make an investment about my career and living in London may effect this investment due to career and network opportunities in London.

I appreciate your answers and suggestions. Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

These are great schools. Keep your eye on the FT ranking, and see if there are any better options (LSE? LBS?). Cass and Imperial will be far ahead of MBS. Remember, lots of MBS programmes are taught in what used to be UMIST rather than in the MBA building or by the MBA faculty. Imperial College certainly has the brand, but I think the 'pathways' for its MSc are really odd, and really reflect what students want to study rather than what businesses want to hire.

PS I just looked at the Cass curriculum. Goodness me - that is streets ahead of Imperial. The concentrations are really valuable, and the second term consulting projects are fantastic.
