Which business school to choose.... super confused!


SD19
Hi,

I am from India with 5+ yrs of work ex. & i m planning to do my MBA from a UK university. I am only targeting universities which have triple accreditation & which admit students with work ex. Pls let me know which out of the following business schools i apply to? like which one out of these would offer me a better job opportunity internationally and a better salary package. i wish to work either in UK or some other country but not India

Henley Business School, Uni. of Lancaster, Uni. of Leeds, Strathclyde Business School, Adam Smith Business School, Edinburgh Business School, Alliance Manchester Business School.
Request u to be as specific as possible or may be rank these schools in terms of international jobs and salary since visa is a BIG problem for international students in UK.
I am looking at Manchester and edinburgh as these i believe offer internship option. but what if i don't get thru either of these... what should be the other options.

I am extremely confused. Pls help

Thanks much

I guess you don't mean Edinburgh Business School but the University of Edinburgh Business School. Look at the FT MBA ranking and add in the column for international mobility.

Hi Duncan.
I am looking at Cranfield, Manchester and Warwick.
I also want to know your views on UCD Smurfit in Ireland and RSM.
I am from India and you must be aware of the visa issues in UK. My interest is management consulting
I will be on a huge bank loan, and I want to continue living in the UK post MBA for a few years.
The same goes with Ireland or Holland too.

Firstly, which among the 5 do you suggest are best for Management consulting or General management.

Secondly, universities publish placement datas as their own even of Indian students and other Intl students who get jobs back home. These are the ones who fail to get jobs in the country of their MBA.
Which of the 5 i have mentioned have highest rate of placement in the same country.
Intl mobility is a different concept, so pls don't redirect me to Forbes or FT page.

Finally and most importantly, 23 June in UK is the referendum on whether UK should be a part of EU or not.
If Brexit takes place , will it be to the advantage of Non EU and Non UK residents like me. ? As of now the chances of Indians getting jobs after MBA in the UK is 1:10 whereas for EU nationals is 7:10.

There's so much already written on Smurfit and RSM on other threads. I don't have much to add to that. Smurfit ranks higher in terms of the quality of the cohort, placement success and employment although those last two could be explained by the failure of most international students to learn the local language. Read: Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713


Assuming you speak Dutch, I think these schools are equally good.

LinkedIn can give you the answer for your second question. Read How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571

On your third point, it is highly unlikely that the British will vote to leave the EU. None of the bookmakers rate it as probable, and the odds are shortening: http://www.oddschecker.com/politics/british-politics/eu-referendum/referendum-on-eu-membership-result I don't think it will make a major chance.

I've no idea where you get your 1:10 and 7:10 numbers from, but this ratio differs greatly by school.

Thanks Duncan.
I read the posts about knowing Local language.
I mentioned Cranfield , Warwick , Manchester , UCD Smurfit and RSM.
First 4 of the 5 are in English speaking countries. Holland also has a high English speaking community.
I don't know Dutch, but I was wondering if one could manage with just English if RSM was to be chosen.

I know English and basic level French which I learnt in my school in India.

I left out France initially as I wanted to study and work in English speaking countries.

If I have to add French b schools to my list with a GMAT score of 680 , 4 years of exp in Oil and Gas, should I aspire for Hec Paris ? Will it be ambitious ?
Does EDHEC rank immediately below HEC Paris ?

How is EDHEC when compared to Cranfield and Smurfit ?

I think these schools are very well discussed on the board already. Read through the board, using Google search.

In the FT ranking, EDHEC ranks far below HEC Paris - #84 vs. #15 - so they're not really comparable in the most general sense.

EDHEC is closer to Smurfit in the ranking, with Cranfield ranked a bit higher.

Cranfield is really way better than EDHEC (and I say that as a happy EDHEC alum). Just compare the salary
