I am a Norwegian student, planning on studying International Business Management in Edinburgh from next semester (September 2015), and I am having some trouble deciding which UNI i should choose.

So, what are the big differences between these UNIs, which one should I choose, and why? :hmmmm:

I'd appreciate all relevant answers, whether it's about student environment, quality of education, opportunities after UNI etc.

(I've gotten conditional offers from both UNIs, my grades are already good enough for Edinburgh Napier, and I'm certain I can make Heriot-Watts conditions as well.)

Anyone help me, please? :confused:

Thanks

Hi Glaeh!

Hope this information helps making your decision easier!

Quality of Education
Heriot-Watt is considered a small university in terms of student numbers. However, this allows us to focus on student's needs.In the first two years, students on all Business Management degrees follow a common programme, which provides a strong grounding in the principles of modern business management and also introduces the more functional areas of management including Marketing, HRM and Organisational Behaviour.Third year is spent abroad as an MA International Business Management student. In fourth year, students choose from a range of specialist courses in the key functional areas of Business Management, including Marketing; HRM; Business Law; and Operations Management. This allows students to tailor the degree to meet their career needs and aspirations. Over 97% of our students last year were satisfied with the IBM course.

Student Environment
At Heriot-Watt we know it's important that a great student environment makes for a great university experience. Our campus is based all in one location at Riccarton, Edinburgh and offers a wide range of facilities, including a doctors and dentist. If you're interested in sport, we have a great sports centre (http://www.hw.ac.uk/sports.htm) which boasts squash courts, exercise classes, a gym and much more. We are also currently in the process of building a new state of the art sports centre, due for completion in 2016. If you're interested in joining a society or just relaxing with friends then our on-campus Student's Union is brilliant (http://www.hw.ac.uk/student-life/cam...ssociation.htm).

Career Prospects
International Business Management degrees provide a wide range of employment options, and our graduates have an excellent reputation with employers. Successful careers include marketing executive at the Football Association, operations manager, international property development manager, management consultant, stockbroker, and financial consultant. The average starting salary of a Heriot-Watt graduate six months after graduation is in the Top 15 in the UK and the 2nd highest in Scotland.We also have a great Careers Service (http://www1.hw.ac.uk/careers/
) on site that you can make use of both during and after your studies.

Why?

I'm not saying I doubt that Heriot Watt is better, I'm just wondering how...
