MSc Management University Selection


Hello
I am a 24 year old Indian female with an engineering background. I have a technical work experience of 2.7 years and am now looking to transit into a managerial role.
I have applied to the following courses, and want to know which would be the best option to choose. I did consider rankings and discussions on this forum before making applications.
My goals basically are to shift from a technical background into a business background, work into project management or consultancy mostly in UK post a masters and continue working in UK for a few years.

Manchester - MSc Business Analysis and Strategic Management - Waiting for a decision
Lancaster - MSc Management - Unconditional offer received
Warwick - MSc in Management - Unconditional offer received
City, Cass - MSc in Management - Received an offer for 2nd choice  of course - MSc International Business
Durham - MSc - Management - Unconditional offer received
Leeds - MSc International Business - Waiting for a decision
Exeter - MSc Management - Unconditional offer received

It would be really helpful if anyone can help me choose from these assuming a best case scenario that I receive offers from the ones I am waiting on or rank these in priority. Thanks!

If you can get into any of these other programs, Exeter should be off the table. The Warwick program is great, and dovetails somewhat with your career goals. If you can land that, it would be my choice. Maybe Cass as a backup, given its location.

Thanks for the insight. As of now I have received an offer for Warwick and I too think it should be my top choice.  However, the amount that I need to spend for it is kind of making me a little doubtful. Especially since I will be on student loan. I just think it helps if someone can confirm its worth the huge amount. 1f642

The difference is outcomes is huge. Why are you doubtful? Run the numbers and compare the NPV.

Look at the average salaries as reported by the FT. That will give you a good sense of the short-term ROI. Longer term the return will grow, for most applicants.
