Hi!
I have already been admitted by Manchester Business School and Cranfield School of Management, and waiting for LBS and Oxford to announce their results. Right now I'm in the process of choosing among these schools. :)

So, I am also willing to get as much information about Manchester Business School as possible.

Thanks!!

Firstly congrats to joining the bandwagon of some top B schools.
I am looking to learn about the type of placement opportunities MBS offers esp for non-EU students ( I am an Indian IT professional, so hope for a profile in consulting, IT and general).

Hey Nitin,

Sorry for the delayed response. I was on vacation.

First off, i may not be the right guy to judge your prospects, simply because i dont know the criteria the school looks for in its students.

Second off, i applied in R1, and my appl was not shortlisted even for an interview. I was given the standard response that "we receive a lot of applis and hence are sometimes not in a position to even accept a deserving candidate.. etc etc...." so i dont know and cant tell you why i got rejected either.

(but then i dont wish to make a judgement here on whether you should or not apply. Its solely your call on whether you wish to apply or not .).

Great and thank you for your helping spirit.

I know it may not be too useful to talk about placement data but knowing the current economic uncertainties in UK and the not so positive job outlook, may we ask for your feeling at MBS now?

What is the general mood of the current students about their future prospects? I said general mood and outlook. Can you please share your thoughts, like how positive or negative most of your fellow classmates are? how upbeat are they? How the placement/career departments are supporting you. Diplomatic answer is not really add any value, so please try to be genuine.

We are talking about a sense of the ground, not those placement data. Please share your feeling

Hi,
Sounds like you're after a brutally honest answer. So, if I'm to be completely honest, in my class most people haven't yet turned their thoughts to the job market so are not particularly positive / negative about their prospects. Everyone has been so busy with project deadlines and end of term exams they haven't given it too much thought. There are a few finance types who have applied for internships already but they are in the minority.

If you put a gun to my head I would say the general feeling is still cautiously optimistic. However, I'm sure this will change next term when the internship rejections start piling up and the optimism gives way to panic. Career services are doing their job in getting companies in - McKinsey, BCG, Shell, Amex, Google, Amazon + various others have been on campus or will be here in Jan. Nevertheless, as they keep telling us, it is up to us to pull our finer out and prepare properly. They will help those that help themselves.

I'll probably be able to give you a more accurate picture come March so please remind me then.

Merry Christmas :lol:

I don't think I would feel the same with a gun pointing at me :wink:

Thank you so much and highly appreciate your honest and true reply. We all know the situation is not rosy, but in fact bad. But we are unable to really gauge how bad is the bad.

I do fully agree that we are not in a time where 'THE Job' is guaranteed for everyone in the branded schools. Everyone has to work extra hard. However, your pain or panic becomes less stressful when you see a caring and pro-active placement support team. Even some genuine soothing words from the team comfort you. I know some top tier European schools where placement teams are just pathetic

We will wait for your update in March next year.

Wish you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year ahead.

Cheers!

Anyone has any data on placement stats on Non EU candidates? How many Indians working in India(and not already working in UK) got an admit in the last class and what percentage of them secured a stellar job in UK/Europe and did not have to go back to India?

Any data, insight, relevant link will be highly appreciated. Thanks.

You have asked generic questions. Whats's your definition of stellar? Stellar can have thousands of definitions. Do you wish to understand how many people got jobs, how much was their average salary, what roles did they get, whether they will be solving business problems for Facebook, whether they will be invited by VCs? What research have you already done? Have you already spoken to the school? Have you conducted your own due-diligence? How many students have you contacted? What's your background?
