Which university is better for business?

I have been offered a conditional offer from all three universities for business and management courses but i'm unsure of which one to go to.

Aston has a really good business school
but Birmingham and Nottingham are in the Russel Group and are prestige

I would think the fact that Aston is known for it's business school trumps the general prestige of the other two unis, no? I mean I would think the quality of the specific course is more important than whether the university is a Russel Group or not. Obviously if you can get both in one then that's great, but I don't think Bham and Nottingham aren't known for business (not entirely sure though).
But recently on the league tables Birmingham has topped Aston for the business course so I'm unsure?

Hmm, I dunno, Aston is more established as a business school, as far as I know. Other members will tell you to not rely too much on league tables as well. If they are pretty much as good as each other and you're finding it really difficult to decide, I think you should think about which university you generally like better. Birmingham and Nottingham are similar in that they're big, campus universities but obviously they're in two different cities. Aston is much smaller, and in the middle of a city centre - think about the different environments etc and what you would prefer - where would you be happier?

They're all good unis, although Birmingham and Nottingham are better than Aston. My friend started at Aston this year for business, and hated it there so much, he left!

If it was me, I'd say either Birmingham or Nottingham, but you should visit both of them, and see which you prefer! There prestige/ranking is very similar!
Just make sure you visit both, you have to be there for 3 or 4 years.. Good luck

Dont touch Aston with a barge pole, just thinking about it will probably infect you.

Aston has the most established business school and strong links to industry, with one of the best employability rates. Aston business school is better than Birmingham's.

I'd choose Aston. Its business school is among the top 1% in the world
