Hi.

The interview was pretty rigerous, 1 hour, had to give a 3 minute presentation and was then questioned by a member of staff. Various questions regarding my application and some scenario questions.

Then received a tour of the school and met with some current students.

I would suggest attending an open day, which includes a group syndicate discussion, very thorough.


Hi,
Thanks, they had a meet & greet in the US scheduled this month which I could not make. The open day sounds like the right approach.

Yes, the open day was enlightening. Very well organised and presented. The syndicate discussion was a unique feature that I thought was excellent.

The only thing that put me off was that there are no flashy £20 million buildings like Imperial or Oxford, but I think the quality of the teaching and reputation in industry are what really counts.

UK and EU Business Schools [#permalink] New post 09 Nov 2012, 05:10
Now that no more HSMP, questionable Visa rule, dull job outlook ...

What you guys think of UK/EU business schools? Although US is not significantly better but definitely better. Canada, AU, SG are definitely much better. Even Hong Kong seems to be better in terms of job prospects.

So why do you think that someone should join an UK/EU programme ?


Please ignore LBS, Oxbridge, Insead and probably HEC.

Please ignore LBS, Oxbridge, Insead and probably HEC.


Reasons:
1) The easy one - to find a job in UK/Europe
2) To get more international exposure - the UK-Schools have much more international students than U.S.-Schools. (e.g. 75% at Cranfield vs. at best 25-35% at US-Schools)
3) If you prefer a one-year program - since there are more 1Y programs in Europe
4) To be in a cohort with more older/experienced students - U.S. School have about average age 28-29 vs. 29-32 European (excluded LBS), WE is about 6-9 years,
5) To learn British English, Spanish or any other European language
6) To try something different (if you are from U.S.)

Ok, I know that the initial post of this thread is meanwhile 7! years old, but still wanted to post some thoughts and findings of my research on UK-Schools:

I can not understand why Oxford is in one group with LBS and not with Cambridge. LBS is 15-21 months, and is always in Top1-2 Non-US schools. Oxford and Cambridge are both 1Yr programs, and none of them was ever in the Top 5 non-US. They both are proud of their college system that differentiates their schools from others (according both to the official MBA pages and to alumni I spoke to). And of course they have very established brands in the world (I bet, much more people are excited when they hear "Oxford" and "Cambridge" than when they hear "Said" or "Judge"). Cambridge has a more international program (Global Consulting Project etc), while Oxford seems to have more committed alumni.

So, I would change the ranking to:

Top:
London (LBS)

Oustanding Brand recognition:
Oxford
Cambridge

Real Program Ranking:
what would you suggest?

According to the P&Q "ranking of the rankings" of non US-Programs 2012 it is (filtered on UK) http://poetsandquants.com/2012/12/18/po ... of-2012/3/:
8. Oxford
12. Cambridge
13. Manchester
14. Cass
15. Cranfield
16. Warwick
20. Lancaster.

I found interesting ranking based on students satisfaction as surveyed by The Economist, also at P&Q: http://poetsandquants.com/2012/10/08/if ... -opinions/
10. Bath
10. Cass
19. Cranfield
37. Oxford
40. London (LBS)
44. Cambridge
