Nottingham or WMG or AMBS

I hold an offer for MSc in Supply chain and logistics from Nottingham and Warwick. I have also applied to Manchester but am yet to get a reply.

I would like to get some insights on which of these should I prioritise considering future employment opportunities.

Thank you!

If placement is your key need then I would not consider WMG: search the board to read more about it. It's a lean academic offer with a puffet of courses aimed at part-time students. 

Otherwise, take a look at  https://www.best-masters.com/ranking-master-in-united-kingdom/master-supply-chain-and-logistics.html and look for degrees inside well-resourced business schools (ideally, those in the FT MiM ranking). Those will have better career services. For example, Imperial, Manchester and Cranfield have top business schools with SCM degrees.

Thank you for your reply Duncan.

I found that WMG has a very intensive course but also good industrial connects, so I thought that would be a beneficial point for prospects after graduation. Are you saying that is not the case?

Also, I've read Nottingham has a good careers team. So would that be a good option to consider? At least until I hear from Manchester.

Exactly right: because it's aimed at part-time domestic students who already have jobs, WMG doesn't have a careers team. I don't believe that the University of Nottingham Business School has a better careers team than the comparable schools in the FT MiM ranking. I think there are just two careers advisors across the MBA, PhD and all the MSc programmes: Teresa looks after employer relations and Clare runs CV clinics and advises students. I think they also support alumni. So, ther's a small amount of resources compared to similarly sized schools.

Thank you! Your inputs certainly will help me make an informed decision.

Nottingham is not in the FT MiM 100 you suggested however, I considered it so far since it has a good ranking in other guide tables. Is it at least good with respect to the value of an MSc from the UoN Business School? Or should I not consider it altogether?

Other rankings will focus on undergraduate experience. You are interested mostly in placement after a MSc from a business school. The MiM ranking is the best guide for you.

I’m a MBA candidate at AMBS in Manchester and have used their careers services recently, I thought it was excellent.
