Smurfit or Alliance Manchester


Hi Everyone,
This post is not related to the MBA but for MSc in Business Analytics.
I got admissions at Smurfit and Alliance Manchester.
Please help me choose the best one in terms of intern/job opportunities for an international candidate.
I have 4 years of work experience. Inclined towards the UK due to PSW, but looking at the negative vibe across multiple platforms on the UK market for international candidates, I am not sure if choosing the UK is the right decision.
Please suggest me if you have anything.
Thank you!!!

I'd choose UCD.

From what I understand, in Ireland you'd be eligible to apply for a 2-year work visa after the MBA. 

Looking at the Master in Management ranking, which you can kinda use as a proxy indicator for the strength of the schools' other MSc programs - UCD probably has the edge, in terms of international mobility. 

However, the UK labor market is bigger than Ireland's, and more diverse. But, Brexit also makes it somewhat of a wildcard. If you have a specific idea for what kind of firms you would be interested in working in, try searching those firms on LinkedIn and see if they have MBAs from either or both of the schools you are looking at. 

Personally, I feel like UCD is overall the safer choice generally speaking but of course you needs / goals may vary.
