Please find the attached document. It list few decent schools in UK, which either do not require GMAT or their GMAT requirement is relatively low as compared to second grade US school. Most of the UK based schools offer 1 year MBA, however, they pretty much cover same syllabus as covered by an US based school. Therefore, UK or any 1 year based MBA courses are more intensive. Moreover, you loose just 1 year salary and so pay back time is quicker too. As per Economist guide average salary in Europe is better than average salary in US. However, In US MBA students get much more time to develop skills in auxiliary areas, which may not be available in 1 year time frame.

Thanks for the post, abhijit_sen! It's a very useful info, +1.
I could add that some of these schools are very respectable in UK and are in fact higher than 2nd tier - for example Cranfield.
It's a great school; the placement in said to be on Oxbridge level. Also, there is (or was) a possibility to pass their own entrance test instead of GMAT.

P.S. I made an xls version of abhijit_sen's table for those who will find it more convenient.

Also don't discount Imperial. They have recently rebrand and the new dean there is "spring cleaning" the faculty for the last two years. It has been climbing in the rankings well the past few years.

Kudos abhijit and greenoak
