BY FINANCE I OBVIOUSLY MEAN THE FINANCE INDUSTRY
:eek: Don't shout.

Even then there isn't much in it. I'd actually say Durham and Nottingham's business schools were in the same tier.

Why are you talking about finance anyway? It's one tiny area (possible the only area Nottingham is slightly better respected than Durham) and has no relevance to the OP.

You shouldn't look at the general ranking instead as MBA in finance and normal finance are different. I didn't bother to find a finance ranking as most finance ranking are based on academia more than interest of business sector.

The point I want to make is in FT values Durham Business School better reputed than Nottingham Business School. So this can disprove WOLLMOTH's claimed superiority of Notts Business School over Durham in terms within financial circles.

Notts is ahead in the MBA table, and behind in the Masters. Not a lot of difference in my opinion..

Not really as you are being no better than he is in basing everything on tables.

Nottingham is more of a target uni for the big IB firms than Durham is, although only slightly. Durham's economics society is sponsored by some of the biggest firms, including PriceWaterhouse and it's undeniably a top uni. It still doesn't quite have that prestige in this area than in others, such as law.

But there really isn't too much difference. Aren't we going a little off topic here?

I had no intention of comparing between the two Business' quality of its course but just its reputation. I am aware that schools' courses quality are different from what the ranking suggests. All, I want to show is how twisted the statement made by WOLLMOTHS is.

Agreed, Nott's economic is reputed but it just arrogant to state that a particular uni have better overall prospect in finance just because of its' targeted more by IB. This simply ignores the fact of what courses the student had taken.

Ok. The unis are copenhagen (8th) and pompeu fabra in barcelona(369th). It's for the same course and they both have brand new departments built in 2006. It's actually for an MSc in Bioinformatics.
Hi, titanlux
Wll I live in Spain, and although I cant offer much advice on copenhagen, I can talk to you about pompeu fabra.
It is certainly one of the 4-5 best universities in Spain. It is a very modern, advanced uni, which is different to almost any other one in Spain. I actually can't believe it is the 369th in Europe, I would've expected it to be much higher.
Take into account that it is not a campus university: it is divided in 6 buildings in the center of Barcelona. Which has some pros and cons: dont forget Barcelona is a beautiful city.
I have applied to pompeu fabra, although Im not sure whether or not I'll go there. In any case, it is highly recommended.

Thank your for your explanation! I think at this moment I'm worried about the structure of the courses outside the UK (i didn't think i've ever say this).

A great bonus for pompeu fabra is that they only specialise in biology at ug science level and have massive connections and installations relating to industry. As far as I know within spain UPF is regarded very highly and in some way thought of as elitist. The problem is whether it's recognised world wide with the same regard Have you been to visit it?

I havent been to visit the University yet, but I've been to Barcelona quite a few times. Great city.
I think I will try to visit Pompeu Fabra in the next 2 weeks or so, if I find something out I'll tell you
