    I have offers from Manchester Business School and Lancaster University Management School.

    MSc Innovation management and entrepreneurship at MBS
    MSc Entrepreneurship, innovation and practise at LUMS

    I have tried to read as much as possible about both schools, and as a result, I'm just confused :P Some say that Lancaster is supposed be really good, but in some rankings, Manchester is above, while again in other, Lancaster rates higher... I know one shouldn't take these rankings too seriously, but I'm not from the UK, so I am unfamiliar with these schools except from what I've been able to read.

    It does seem like Lancaster is far better when it comes to student satisfaction according to NSS, which does seem important?

    Any thoughts?
    Having a hard time making up my mind. If anyone have taken these courses, or been at those schools could you please share you opinion of it?

    I would greatly appreciate any inputs!

    Since you are applying just entrepreneurship courses, i bet you are an aspiring entrepreneur! Me too.

    I have visited both Lancaster and Manchester. Alexafc12 is right. Manchester is a better city as Lancaster University is like a student town itself outside Lancaster city.

    I am also applying for MSc international innovation (Enigineering) at Lancaster and will be going for interview later this coming week.

    I met a few management students from Bath and Manchester and they are all very smart and impressive.
    I feel that Lancaster Uni focuses a lot on Small and Medium Sized companies. So, if your aim is to do start up after MSc, i would choose Lancaster.

    Did you apply for MSc international innovation (Entrepreneurship)? We can be classmates! =)

    [QUOTE=Linnsi;48525645]I have offers from Manchester Business School and Lancaster University Management School.

    Deffo come to Lancaster University, its not as big as Manchester of course but its much more student centered unlike Manchester which is quite big. Lancaster is very student centered and especially very safe and friendly environment for Masters/International Students! I did my Undergrad from there and had the best 4 years! Plus the rankings for Lancaster are growing really quickly. Plus if you want to go shopping to Manchester its not too far Hope this helps! Goodluck!

    P.S Im also doing the same course in Lancaster
