Warwick EMBA vs Cambridge JBS EMBA


F_M

Hello All

I work in the Automotive field and wanted to switch function within my industry (or a parallel one) to S&O or Consulting.

I've narrowed down to these two (WBS @ London / CJBS) for various reasons (investment, programme structure, my logistics & convenience being a few) and had a few questions.

1. Does Cambridge JBS' name hold a higher "brand equity" in the market in 2020? Is Ox-Bridge still a thing??
2. In terms of the "Automotive - Transport & Mobility - Energy - Sustainability" fields, is one better than the other?
3. They're both pretty similar in rankings etc... some higher some lower aspects between the two.

Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks all!

1. Oxbridge is absolutely a thing. I would take Cambridge without the blink of an eye.
2. Your second question is actually a really complex career strategy question that can only be answered by looking at your skills, goals, values and interests, not by macroeconomic trends.

Thank you for the super quick reply, Duncan.
About (2.), my experience is mainly in technical strategy and core engineering mainly at Automotive manufacturers. My goal is something like a MBB or PWC's "Strategy &" in the UK. Would that make it clearer?


Also, if Oxbridge was absolutely a thing, why do these Global Rankings keep shuffling so much?

From 2017 to 2019 EMBA FT rankings...
WBS >> 25 to 18 to 24
CJBS>> 15 to 25 to 18

Economist EMBA rankings...
WBS - 10th
CJBS - Absent from rankings?

I just don't get it. :-(

Global rankings have to change, otherwise there would be no business model for them. The movements mostly reflect macroeconomic factors. Schools are tightly clustered so small changed mean schools stay inside their group but move around.

Those aren't huge shifts and some movement is to be expected, given changes in post-MBA salary, career progression, etc.

Plus, beyond career data, the rankings take into account other factors, such as international balance, gender balance, etc. So there will clearly be some re-calibrating from year to year.

For this tier of UK school, the rankings are relatively stable. It's the lower tier schools that have shifted downward in the past years, especially in the Global MBA ranking.
