Which to choose? Loughborough or Strathclyde?


soas18

I've been offered a place to do Entrepreneurship & Innovation Management at Loughborough and Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology at Strathclyde. I'm unsure as to which university to firm so please help me out

Loughborough

Pros
Ranked 7th in the CUG rankings (How is it higher than Warwick & UCL??)
High student satisfaction
London location (course is offered at the London campus which is exclusively for postgrads)
Business school ranked higher than Strathclyde

Cons
More expensive - akin to doing a postgrad at Imperial or Warwick
Not quite well known outside of the UK/No brand name
A lot of internationals from China on the course - about 80%!

Strathcylde

Pros
Internationally well known business school
Practical modules
Affordable

Cons
Location: Glasgow instead of London.


If you've studied at either university, it would be great to hear your views/reviews overall.


Thanks!

You are using undergrad rankings to compare postgrad programmes. Strathclyde has better placement and a better reputation. Use the FT MSc rankings for guidance.
