    According to FT, Imperial is leaps and bounds ahead:

    Congratulations on your offers! Both universities are great and you will do well from either but, imo, Imperial trumps Warwick for business related degrees.

    Well both business schools are very good for any MSc I believe in terms of teaching, lecturers etc... Though, perhaps it is worth looking at other factors that are related to both schools e.g location, connection with compagnies, alumni network ...

    People have different motivations. If this can help; I had a chat today with a friend who has an offer also from warwick and imperial (MSc in engineering). Both departements are very good in what they do. However, he has taken other considerations when choosing the university. Apparenlty, he goes to gym every day and he said imperial has 5 gyms and that was one reason opted for it. Obviously, that was one aspect he considered.

    Personnally this would have a minor affect in my decision as a tend to go gym only once a week. Though, library services are relevant for me as I study only and never at home.

    So think about what would be of relevance to you during your degree and which uni provides the best.

    These questions might also help you

    What are your perspectives and motivations after and during the MSc ?
    what sector you intend to evolve in ?
    If you are an international student which school is best known in your country ?

    Hi there,

    I have accepted my offer for the Imperial FTMBA 2013. I can't personally comment on WBS, but it is a very respectable school.

    As for Imperial College Business school, it is located just beside the Science Museum on Exhibition road, which makes it quite easy for speakers to visit the school. Many of the faculty members have taught at other leading business schools, and Imperial has very strong connections to the Healthcare and Engineering industries. Being in London also makes it a bit easier to go for interviews at leading firms. The downside about living in London is that everything is extremely expensive.

    No, in a word. I opted for Warwick over Imperial, but really they are quite similar. Like someone else has already said, when you're choosing between them you may want to take other factors into account. Personally I felt Warwick had a stronger record in terms of the sort of graduate jobs I wanted. WBS is also fairly well known for producing a vast quantity of directors at the firms I wanted to work in. That said, equally Imperial is great, I just wasn't too keen on the campus when I went down to visit. To me, and a friend I asked who is a lecturer at LSE, there isn't anything between them really. She advised me to apply for LSE, Imperial, Warwick and Cam, but lean towards LSE :P. Like I say, in the end I went for Warwick.
