Please note that Cass business school has since been renamed to "Bayes business school". Bayes is definitely the best choice on all levels.

Yes sir , i've considered the rankings Bayes is way ahead than the other two colleges , but i saw a post of u saying international business from bayes is of poor outcomes compare to other management programme's they offer . Strathclyde has a very good employment rate in recent past , It's business school is on rise from few years , so in confusion to choose between Bayes and Strathclyde

international business from Bayes is of poor outcomes compared to other management programmes they offer 


This is true at every school, and is nothing to do with Bayes. The international business/management pathway is generally less quantitative and more aimed at people returning to their home country, while the flagship MiM will be more selective, more quantitative and better suited for people wanting to work where they study. 

Strathclyde has a very good employment rate in recent past , It's business school is on rise from few years 


I not sure that's the case at the MSc level. Even at the MSc level, remeber that their flagship MiM is basically a 'freshers MBA', and holders can easily upgrade to an MBA after a few years. That is not the case with the international business options.

The three rules are:

1. Practice-rich degrees aligned to business functions and skills shortages > Qualitative, generic degrees

2. Excellent business schools, highly relevant to your goals > good business schools, with average relevance

3. Studies aligned to your goals, values and aptitude > Studies aligned to better paying jobs you will hate. 

Take a look at the FT rankings for the MiM and MiF: Other things being equal, the MiF will get the average student better placement than a degree in international business. Salaries are even higher in economics at the undergraduate level.

Excellent advice, especially number 3 which probably gets overlooked by students.



Would be good to have this as a sticky note but it seems this forum doesn't support that functionality?

I don't see any data to suggest that Strathclyde has better MSc placement than Bath. If it did, surely it would be in the FT MIM ranking. The alternatives to Bath should be schools with higher percentages employed and similar or better salaries.

See my profile page to see how to get a personal recommendation.  I just don't understand why you think Lancaster is "slightly" higher than Strathclyde when Lancaster is in the ranking and Strathclyde is not. https://rankings.ft.com/rankings/5/masters-in-management-2021

The FT ranking includes outcomes like employment and salary for the MiM in particular. If outcomes from the MiM matter to you less than the criteria in the undergraduate-focussed rankings then use those.

Hi Duncan!

Is Project Management a course directly aligned to any business function of a company? 

Could you suggest some good schools in UK for the same?

The three rules are:

1. Practice-rich degrees aligned to business functions and skills shortages > Qualitative, generic degrees

2. Excellent business schools, highly relevant to your goals > good business schools, with average relevance

3. Studies aligned to your goals, values and aptitude > Studies aligned to better paying jobs you will hate.
