Pretty much in the order you listed them. Strathclyde is world class and has one of the best placement rates around.

Hi Duncan - Does this information with respect to placements holds true even for non-EU students ? Also , recently UK government has announced 2 year post study Visa but while speaking with university , I have come to know that they haven't received any official communication yet after the announcement . Wat are your views on this ?

There are more or less only non-EU studenta on these degrees.

There is lots of official communication about the two year visa, and a Google search led me to https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-announces-2-year-post-study-work-visa-for-international-students--2

If a business school expects the government to write to it to inform it of visa changes, then they are idiots.

Thanks for the response on Strathclyde . The reason I am curious about post study Visa changes is that all of the universities I have interviewed with gives me the same response .Any how , I have few months spare time to get more clarity on this .

You might find it more useful to look at gov.uk. certainly the government policy is clear and, given their increased majority in our recent election, I think you can assume it will remain.

I'm not sure what extra clarity you can have in a few months since the rule will be introduced only for people starting in 2020 so it's only on 2021 that the time period on the visa will increase. However I think you can assume everything will be exactly the same, but the time period will increase from one to two years.

Hi Duncan , it's just one final question with respect to the strathclyde MBA . I have seen that they are renowned for their reputation and excellence of research in the area of strategy and strategy management. However, what's their global rank in terms of MBA in strategy specialization ?

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you want to work for a strategy consulting firm you will need to target much better schools. No-one seriously ranks one year MBAs for specialisation because a few electives is not analogous to the second year specialised tracks of US MBAs.

Also, I'd be skeptical of any school offering a specialization in 'strategy.' This would be a topic that is probably well covered by any good MBA core classes, and I can't see what added value a structured 'specialization' would add.

I think Cornell has a great example of a specialization plan that works - https://www.johnson.cornell.edu/programs/full-time-mba/two-year-mba/curriculum/immersion-learning/

Do you mean the "Consulting and Strategy" area of focus? Yes, there is a strong focus on consulting here, which would be great prep for the industry.

None if you are an Indian student which I guess you are judging by your name. Check out the linkedin profiles of indians who graduated from Strathclyde or Sheffield and ask them how many got a job in the UK. Answer would be close to ZERO. In India, strathclyde has a stronger alumni network than the rest but i would suggest you to apply to stronger schools.

You'd be more likely to find people who made a transition like this graduated from Strath versus Sheffield. Strathclyde will also have the stronger international network.
