Thank you so much for such a nice sum up. I highly appreciate your very balanced views.
I was interested in LUMS bcoz of their quality and probably due to Henry Mintzberg connection.
But I was worried about location. You rightly pointed out, in UK, you must be very near to London to be part of the action. I stayed in Luton and still found it difficult to visit London frequently for interviews and other stuff.
Wife's job is a major issue in small towns
Half of the students are Indian simply put a red flag for me. If that is the case then why not IIMs?
Visa is a great issue now. My personal experience is, many of the employers are clueless about the process and conveniently assume the process to be very complex and simply ignore non EU candidates. Whether you like or not, as an Indian, you need to far more superior to be considered for a job in UK.
Unable to comment on Rain part but I know, winter is very depressing in UK, with just few hours of day light in a day.
Would like to hear some positive views too.
Hey twins23 & mnandres!
Nice of you to help us out.
I have an offer from Lancaster, Bath & Birmingham for their Full Time MBA.
I wanted to know what you think of the above and what are aspects of your RESPECTIVE MBA (Lancaster for twins23 & Bath for mnandres) that have really made it awesome?
How far is it from the town? Does it have any disadvantages as that of a uni in a big town?
Also, what is the class make up like? And the students having good experience??
I have my own business so for me it more important that the class be very international and with good experience.
@iimrohtak - this is not the ideal platform for such questions. You should visit the uni website and/or email them directly.
I am looking to apply to some of these schools. I would like to know about the fees of the course, if bank loans (in India/UK) are available for funding, the job scenario and the duration of investment recovery.
I got MBA offers from following Universities for 2012 session:
1. Lancaster (UK)- with 3000GBP scholarship
2. Smurfit UCD (Ireland)- with 10k Euro scholarship
3. Univ of Edinburgh Business School
I am doubtful about UK due to new visa implementation. Ireland provides one year post study work visa and employment seems relatively easier there.
Kindly let me know your valuable suggestions to help me decide one of the schools. Last date for deposit to confirm the place is approaching very fast for me.
Hi, I graduated from the Bath MBA in 2010 and am now working in financial services in London. Very good MBA choice in my case and fantastic value for money. I recovered the investment a year after graduation, and am happy to answer any questions
Hello everyone and congrats to all those who have got an offer and accepted it!
I am a current MBA full time student at Lancaster University. I would be more than happy to help anyone with any queries regarding Lancaster MBA. So please feel free to shout out any queries that you have here.
Thanks and good luck!
