A bit random, but how would you guys compare McCombs vs Said? Were any of you looking at both?


I think that they are peer schools. Depends on your location preference. Mccombs will give you a chance to do an internship and possible make it easier to change careers. Said's career center is not as good as Mccombs based on my research.


I have actually met the head of the Careers Service, Derek Walker, on an open day. I must say he was extremely impressive and because of the smaller class size he seemed to be very hands on. He almost allayed my fears about the 1 year programme.

Hahah!! I know what you mean, buddy! I keep reaching for my phone at every ting. Reminds me of a verse from Urdu poetry:
Har ik aahat pe lagta hai ke tu aai hai,
Dar pe dastak kisi bachay ki shararat nikli.


Which translates roughly into "Every footstep outside my door makes me think that you've come, but the knock on my door turned out to be a childs mischief." ;)

Oxford has posted a summary of the career report for the 2012 grads - http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/degrees/mba/Doc ... 011_12.pdf
The report is not very encouraging. Salaries are flat and only 74% are employed 3 months after graduation. The report also mentions that non EU students are finding it hard to obtain sponsorship for work visas.

Thanks for posting

The % employed after graduation has never really been important to me. Clearly anyone in this category is either a bad candidate (which I'm not), have unrealistic expectations or unemployed because they choose to be

The lowest and the highest are outliers. It could be someone accepting a position at a non profit. The median is usually the one to look at, although with only 74 percent employed the median is really the 37th percentile. Anyways will reserve judgement until the full report is released.

Guys, help me please!
I thought about Oxford mfe program for a long time. But is it possible for anybody without pure economics and mathematic background to go through selection process?
My background is management, for example, I had no problem with mathematic, but I am really concerned with my perspectives if I decide to apply on this program.
And second question is quiet stupid, but ... is it true about so technical interview? Because, for example, MIT ms in finance has a pretty easy, "soft" interview, as I heard.

COngrats first off all!

So out of curiosity, how does one request an early decision? Is there a formal process or did you just call/email them saying that you had been admitted to McCombs and would like to get their decision asap so that you can take an informed decision or do you have any special contacts at Said? ;)

There is no formal process. I emailed the admissions department and they were kind enough to oblige.

Hey everyone, I wanted to know if anyone had any information on the acceptance rate/successful admit information when applying during the Oxford open field timeline? I am going to be able to apply only by end of May so I wanted to see what my chances would be.
