Imperial or Smurfit UCD MBA? [#permalink] New post 29 Jul 2010, 01:50
Hi,

I have offers of an MBA from Imperial College Business School in London & Smurfit Business School, UCD in Dublin.

I have 5 years front office financial markets experience in Dublin, & post graduation I currently think I would like to join an investment bank associate program or a front office role in London.

Is the extra expense worth going to what is widely considered by people to be a Tier 2 program (ie below LBS & Oxbridge) rather than doing the best course available to me in my own country? Also, Imperial is more known for entrepreneurship, rather than pure finance & it is banking/finance that I want to do afterwards.

Wondering does anyone have experience of either of these courses, or any advice?

Thanks in advance

The people I met from Smurfit were great folks. Can't say much on the course, but they put on a solid display each year in NC at the World MBA Rugby tournament.
