UK MBA - Help with Selection


VSJ_MBA

Brunel doesn't make such sense over Bath. I think you can use LinkedIn to map the roles and employers. I don't quite understand why you are avoiding the GMAT. I would certainly consider Oxford and perhaps Henley as commutable as Bath and Brunel. 


I started off quite late in the application process and GMAT is not an option as I want to be in a program starting this year. From the six schools listed above, I have shortlisted two. I just want to choose one of University of Bath or University of Nottingham. I also have an offer from Birmingham, but the program (MBA - International Business is not relevant for my background.

Nottingham MBA program is quite relevant and also substantially cheaper vs Bath after considering the scholarships from both schools. Since I would be living with family, the living costs in Nottingham are also cheaper vs Bath. And living in a larger city offers better employment prospects for my spouse.

So the question is, Is there a significant difference in the career services offered by Bath vs Nottingham that mitigates the additional spend for the program and living expenses in Bath?

I appreciate and understand that there are other schools which are better, but I need to choose one of the above. So kindly advise on this request specifically.

Bath has better placement, better students and much higher starting salaries. It's basically a suburb of Bristol, so lots of jobs there and in Cheltenham.
