I am a software engineer from India, having a work ex of 3.8 years. I'm looking for a good management degree that I could use in my current field.
I have offers for an MSc Management in UCD Smurfit, Strathclyde, and Bath. I am expecting to hear from Lancaster, Warwick and UOE as well, soon. I am really confused because these all are really good universities. I have read a lot of articles and that has caused a lot more confusion. Rankings wise they all are good for the course. So now I want to see other factors like living expenses, part-time availability of jobs while I am studying because I have big financial constraints. All of my fees is to be covered by loan... Also post-study employment is a huge factor, I want to be working for 2 years before I come to my country.
I see UCD 's fees is cheaper, but I heard from a friend who just passed out from UCD that there aren't many opportunities in Management for international students in Ireland. Warwick 's fees is costlier than Edinburgh and is in the outskirts of the city, but has a real good alumni and ranking. Strathclyde is lower in rankings but has a good reputation for international students. Basically, considering all that i have read here and there so far plus ft rankings I'm down to UCD Warwick UOE and Bath. But i'd like an honest feedback for all.
Can someone please give me suggestions based on Employability/post study job opportunity,and partime availability and living costs
I have to make this decision within two weeks because of UCD's acceptance deadline So..Please help!!
