Need help deciding my conditional offer with Bath for full-time MBA 2013 program


Tdesai

Hello everyone, I have 4 yrs experience in IT and I recently made an application to the Bath MBA program. I got a conditional offer letter from them asking for a GMAT of 600min. I have been checking the FT rankings and looks like Bath is back on the list. I have been reading through the recent list of posts and still wasn't convinced about what needs to be done.
I have a gap of 2 yrs since my last career and I enrolled into MBA for a change of career profile. I am looking to apply to other unis such as Aston, Henley, Birmingham, Warwick( optional, depending on my GMAT score). i will be taking my GMAT exam on the 31st May'2013. Kindly suggest the best option. Could also recommend any other universities that I could apply to. Thanks!

Bath is not a bad programme at all. As you say, it's improving at the moment but then that also means that it's not a fully stable investment since the school goes up and down a bit. Bath MBAs are spread pretty thinly, but there are little clusters in Lloyds, the MoD, and HP. It certainly doesn't have the sort of strong alumni network that will act as a sturdy conveyor belt to help you network you way forward.

Do you want to accelerate in the UK IT industry? Warwick, Henley, LBS and Cranfield are the top schools for that, followed by Imperial, Manchester, Strathclyde and Cass. You have a whole month to improve your GMAT, so I really suggest you focus on that.
