Manchester because it has a very reputable (globally) Business School and employment prospects there are excellent.

Nobody else can tell you wheres best for you to go hun =D Visit all the places, find out more about the courses, and pick the one you like the most. They're all pretty good uni's so don't worry about league tables and so on go with where you think you'd be happiest spending the next 3 or 4 years of your life!

Aston has very high employability ratio's, (above cambridge 2005) and offers a placement year (which Manchester doesn't afaik) which is an excellent way to experience working life before entering it fully.

I know hun, thats wat I'm goin to do. I just wanted an overview on, out of Aston, Bristol and Manchester, which one would people go to and why? I'm waiting for their open days. The pro for manchester is the social side and Old Trafford. Pro for Aston is placement year.

Bristol is easily the best overall university out of them but probably the worst business school.

That is true for Accounting and Finance. But in terms of the business school to which I was eludicating they are no where to be found- don't even make the top 20.

Aston top 20 in europe. Only low in UK rankings for business schools due to low requirements grades (in comparison).

Bristol don't actually have a business school, thats why there not on that list. Their accounting and finance modules are based in the economics, accounting and management department. Out of the three Bristol is easily the best, both as an overall university and in terms of accounting and finance. Also, for employability in the City.

Manchester's just been rated 3rd in the UK, 7th in Europe and 22nd worldwide...don't think the others come close quite frankly.

Thats for MBA rankings. Some people are just clueless. Why would an MBA ranking matter to us undergrads!
