Southampton, Sheffield or Salford MBA [#permalink] New post 15 Mar 2010, 20:42
Hi,

I am Indian female with very good acedamics and close to 5 years of work experience in a software company inBangalore. I do not want to write GMAT and want to do my MBA in 2010-11 batch. I have a financial contraint and cannot exceed £20,000 (approx) including my living expenses.

I had applied for a few UK colleges for MBA 2010 which meet my above criteria. Of which, I have unconditional offers from few of them and havent heard from the other colleges yet. I am confused to choose the right one for me.

1) The University of Southampton MBA (£16750)

2) The University of Sheffield Management School (£14600 after £2000 off for Indian students)

3) The Salford MBA (£9000 after a £5000 off provided thru scholarship for good acedamics)

All three are AMBA accredited. One of my primary concerns post MBA is a good career oppurtunity in UK. Can you please help /guide me decide on which one of these colleges will be the best for me.

P.S.: I have an offer for MS in management from University of Glasgow also.

Thanks,

Sindhu

Nobody has given you an answer to Salford. This is a newly AMBA accredited MBA in a respectable UK university. The course has a small intake and there is just one group. The course is intensive and innovative and is gaining a good reputation.

The University of Salford is situated in Manchester close to the city centre and all associated cultural social and sporting activities.

Hi Sindhu,

Salford Got AMBA Accrediation last year that is in 2009
Sheffield is a very good University It was ranked 40th in the World's top 100 Universities by one study.Ranked amongst the top 20 universities in Britain and Europe and the faculty of engineering. Which means Sheffield is very Good for technical Education.

Southampton got the status of a University in 1952 and so its alos a very good traditional University but the fees for MBA is Way to High and adding up the Living expenses it would certainly Cross the 20k Mar that you have Set.

So you have to Decide between Salford or Sheffield.

Sheffield is again around 5000 Pounds costlier than the Salford MBA

In UK a Ranking of a University is Based on the RAE which is based on the amount of the research that Happens in an University, For Business Related studies Sheffield and Salford rank More or Less around the same mark.

Having all these Factors in Mind i would recommend Salford.

Salford MBA is Gaining a Very Good Reputation and the Location is Very close to the Manchester as well.

So 5000 GBP is around 3.5 Lakhs which is all the money you would need as a Living Expense.

So select Salford.

Wish you all sucess.

Salford has been a University since 1967, the course is highly innovative, I suggest you check out the website of the UNI and look at all aspects of the Business School and all the playback videos that describe the University, campus and area.

Salford is in Manchester and is close to the City with all amenities and transport links and the course is gaining a very good reputation.
