Hi
As i do not have a good GMAT score so i am left out with few options in hand in term of Universities where i can apply to .
Here is the list of 4 Universities :

Hi Varun,

I can understand the GMAT part, at the end of the day if the adcoms agree with your point then thats the end of your worries.

Note i am giving this info based on only my personal knowledge.

Glasgow university is really great for an Msc, but not sure about MBA even then it has a good reputation among inner parts of UK.

Ashton University is also well recognized, but i would hold it one or 2 points lower than Glasgow.

Ashton attracts many UK nationals as well, so you could build a good network.

Glasgow is in scotland, so not many english people tend to live off far away and tend to prefer universities which are internal to U.K.

Just a suggestion, i would advise you to apply also to LSE, Kingston university and i would say you can pretty much get into LSE, though LSB may be difficuly with low GMAT.

U.K. adcoms in my assumption would see what kind of a person you are rather than drill you on technicalities.

Take care.

Hi Varun, glad if it made sense.

Keep in mind that in Lsb, unless you are really really want to go there, you would find mature people there, bankers and other people, its different from USA schools, as its only one of the biggest business schools in U.K. and almost everybody wants to get into it. Its also very costly for one year.

LSE is also good. I am not sure about the starting dates, but every university prefers normal dates, i.e. fall.

Regards.

Hi Varun, i will keep this quick.

LSE is very picky about candidates. Look at their acceptance rate. Its because the school is heavy for economics and finance.
Apply to kingston, then glasgow, then aston.
Even if you need a loan , apply for one and get into kingston. Its in London and if you did your mba in that area compared to scotland then you will have better prospects, location matters.

There are several other schools like IE, Rotman, but your school needs to be recognized.

Dont just do an mba for time sake, i can assume why you said glasgow and aston but i am telling you again, apply to kingston or some other school instead. BUT this is important, you might as well get into a non traditionmal mba school and become really successful.

Regards.

Does LSE offer its own MBA program? coz I know that it just offers an EMBA program called TRIUM which runs jointly with NYU Stern & HEC Paris.

However, I would rate Birmingham University at the top of your list as it has a good job placement, and would keep Aston as a backup.
