Strathclyde vs Edinburgh MBA for Indian Architect


I am an Indian Architect with over 5 years of experience as an architect & as a college professor. I also hold an international and indian postgraduation in architecture respectively.

Which of the two Universities would you suggest to move towards project/construction management and real estate based leadership roles? Which of the two could be helpful in bagging an international placement?

See the post on my page about using LinkedIn. Why an MBA? Surely these roles in the UK are held by people with RICS MSc's and PM qualifications?

Thanks you for responding to this post Duncan.

1. Why MBA? I am an Architect cum Project Manager with no academic background in managing businesses. I require the skills to upgrade. Also, an international MBA will prepare me and present me to a global market of real estate and management. 

2. I am also working towards a RICS qualification although UK is not my primary job target.

3. Apart from the roles in PM and Real Estate, I am also willing to explore a role in Marketing Management albeit related to Architecture & Interior Design.

4. Last but not the least, I wish to research south asian real estate at some stage of my career and plan to pursue DBA.

Do your target employers hire MBAs into the roles you seek in your target market? If so, which schools do they recruit from the most? A postgraduate qualification from a top school in your target market/region will probably be more valuable. Even a high-quality distance learning masters, like the Illinois iMBA or Harvard ALM, coupled with networking and projects in your target market, would be more effective.
