Hello everyone I am from Pakistan. I need guidance in selecting a university for my Msc. I am interested in courses like marketing, Management, International Business management, HRM.

I am in my last semester of Bachelors and my current CGPA is 3.73 on a 4 point scale. IELTS expected score is plus 7. I cannot afford universities above 18000 pounds.

Please guide in terms of job prospects in UK or international, value, reputation worldwide and cost

Regards

Brunel and Royal Holloway are also very good options for Business related courses.

I'd throw in Birmingham too.

I've done the MSc International Marketing at Strathclyde and can only recommend it though they've changed the structure slightly from when I did it.

Cardiff got a great Business School too, Marketing & Strategy's big there as well.

For Marketing, what you want to learn about is Customer Relationship Management (from developing a Customer Relationship Strategy to hands-on experience of Sales Force / other CRM systems) and analysing big data - neither of which was properly taught at Strathclyde at the time, not sure whether any marketing degree actually teaches this but this is what I'm now doing in my marketing job. There were a few other shortcomings at Strathclyde but none of the other marketing degrees I looked at would cover those either.

What was good at Strathclyde were the many team projects and the team building experience (I trust they still do those things).

Bro I am confused about my personal statement. I am so afraid from it that each day I write some bits but then I delete it. So could you guide me through this about how to deal with it?
