As per my friend in the MBS Class of 2014
1. Struggle for internships is on
2. UK job market is very tough. And if you're looking for internships in other European countries, local language proficiency/fluency is a must
3. McKinsey shortlisted just 2 candidates in the whole batch for internships. One had a GMAT of 750, the other 730
4. Some good general management roles are on offer if you're interested in getting into Industry
5. No top-tier investment banks recruit at MBS

I don't know what inside the link you provided.

But, both way is possible, it all depends on your luck or coincidence or hard work or whatever else you want to term it. Ofcourse there are success stories and there are huge question marks. I know two very close cases, one my cousin and another one my very close friend. Cousin did from London and although he has a job but I do not feel that is the desired role. My friend in one of the top school in Canada is still struggling.

In normal time, getting a desired role from these school used to be cake walk!!

@catiim

Please SPEAK to FEW real students in current batch. Also talk to students in similar schools. Also try to find your own contact rather than tota (parrots) of the schools.

Honestly speaking, I myself is quite shaky after hearing many students. It is quite surprising for me to find such an uncertainty in the very best schools and from some of the really exceptional students.

The experience shared is not only for Man, it is across the board. Some student even gone to the extreme to say their friends in LBS having difficulties!!

Take decision based on your own feeling, I might be paranoid about job, who knows?

@catiim Will post it in a day or two. The source is the Admissions Director Dr. Heather Spiro, who handed me over a brochure and a pamphlet that had info specific to placements for Indian students once my interview with her got over.
@batiatus Can you quote the source of information for salary of Indian Students? Misfortunately, I don't have any other admission so I am in a fix.....

Tier 1, Tier 2 are very subjective. Even the ranking are very subjective. What most important is mutual FIT.

MBS is definite an excellent school and I personally rank MBS just after LBS, in the same league of OxBridge, Cranfield and Warwick.

@catiim Hey...in my view, MBS is Tier-2, though ranked 29 in latest FT Rankings. I applied in the hope of a decent scholarship. Besides, the job market and visa norms in the UK are a big challenge. If you look at the salary figures too i.e. of Indian candidates only, they aren't impressive at all. Hence, the ROI too becomes a problem.
@DIGNIFIEDLIFE yeah sure... I have sent you a PM
