I have got admits from Cranfield and Warwick for full-time MBA,14 and I am unable to decide between the two. Request you all to please share your opinions about these two bschools, so that i can take an informed decision.

My background: I am an Indian and have 6 years of exp in IT Strategy consulting with one of the big 4 professional services firm.

Objective: Pursuant to my MBA,I aim to work in UK/EU in management consulting.

What I am not sure is, Placement Outlook. Which school will have better scope to land in a decent job in Management Consulting in UK/EU. I am also requesting views on career services support at these 2 bschools.

Your opinions/views will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

I think How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571 is the best approach.

The Cranfield MBA has a strong focus on consulting skills, and the school has excellent relationships with consulting firms - especially Atos, AT Kearney and Deloitte.

You mean the Atos who shamefully do the fit-for-work program checking out disabled people is that the kind of consulting you want to work for

That's the outsourcing division of Atos, not the consulting business. But I see nothing shameful about using qualified doctors and standardised tests agreed with disabled groups to eliminate at least a proportion of the many people who fraudulently claim enhanced benefits on spurious grounds of being unable to work on medical grounds.

I think you're both a bit off topic here. There are 15 Cranfield alumni working at Atos, and 9 Warwick alumni, in the UK according to LinkedIn. Does that really affect this candidate's choice between those schools?

As MisterMark hints, they are all in Atos Consulting rather than the IT and outsourcing business. But they are also small numbers and won't differ much at similar schools.
