Congrats on your admission to Warwick. As far as ranking these schools, I wouldn't even consider Bradford - unless as a safety, but since you've already got an offer from Warwick that would be irrelevant. Here's how I'd rank the others in terms of reputation:

1. Imperial
2. Cass
3. Warwick

Distance learning programs are generally tricky in that they don't offer a lot of concrete networking opportunities. This has been shifting recently but it's up to you to decide if a distance program would be right for you.

Are you planning on working in Dubai after you graduate?

Amol, an Executive MBA is a part-time MBA aimed at people with more work experience than full-time MBAs.

Ralph, I think you're comparing the schools but not the programmes. As a university Imperial is much stronger than Warwick, and same is true when comparing the full-time MBAs.

Students on the Imperial DL programme gave it really bad ratings in the Economist survey - especially in terms of its low completion rate. It's a programme originally designed for the London External programme, which has a very low cost.

Warwick has a really longer and deeper experience in distance learning MBAs, and the programme allows people to come to the school for an week each semester and there are further block weeks available.

If an EMBA was available I would choose Cass, but for distance learning I would choose Warwick over Imperial.

I am working in UAE and planning to join Executive MBA in Bradford.
After reading your comment was a bit nervous. Can you explain why Bradford is not good.

Hi Riyaz,

I believe Ralph comments on Bradford have to viewed in context of its comparison with Warwick, Cass and Imperial, otherwise Bradford MBA is reaonably ok and its Dubai program is really a very good value for money.

Compare to Strathyclyde how is Bradford, because both are equivalent, but the later is a bit cheaper. If you were me then which one you would prefer.

Yes, that's what I meant.

I think these are pretty comparable programs. Both schools have been in the country since the 90s, and have a chance to develop their networks. I'd look closely at the curriculums, because there are some differences: I think Bradford offers a wider range of curriculum options, like a course in change management, one in e-business, etc.
