Hi guys,
i am new to the forum and looking for some opinions regarding my course choice for an MSc this year.

short background info:
1. BSc International Business Austrian German university (2nd upper)
2. >1 year work experience in Banking and Consulting.
3. interested to go into management consulting
4. I really consider to do a PhD afterwards.


The Universities:

- Grenoble Ecole de Management (Master in international Business, Paris Campus)
- Durham (Master in Management / Business Ethics)
- Bath
- Edinburgh
- St. Andrews


Location doesnt play a role for me. All Universities in London like LSE, Imprial... are just to expensive for me.

I want a MSc at a globally recognized school with top career service and professional development.

Thanks for any feedback !

If you are planning to do a PhD, career service is irrelevant. Do your msc where you feel like doing your PhD, so preferably better brand names. In terms of academic quality Bath, Durham and Grenoble are slightly better than the rest, but I would still try to target top unis in London and the Mphil in Management Research at Cambridge, because they have better phd programs.

Hello. I am currently doing my Msc in Management (Finance) in Durham. I am an international student too, and london schools were too expensive for me too. So I chose Durham because has one of the best rankings in Management in UK (5th or 6th I think) and it is also affordable in terms of fees (Accommodation is a bit overpriced). Overall I am happy with my choice, my only hint for you would be to consider a possible overlap with your previous courses in your bachelor degree. This Master has 4 classes of management 101 (but it gets pretty tough for those without business school experience) such as Organizational Behaviour, Economics, Accounting and Strategy. Personally I was super bored with these classes, coming from a business school myself. Second semester is far more interesting and challenging for every management programme in Durham. There is even a "consulting" optional module, which would look great on your CV. Regarding the phd opportunities I am not very informed on the subject. Bath and Edinbrough, while they have a really good reputation too, they are not doing so well ranking wise, compared to Durham. Finally, I would recommend my own course (Management with Finance) as more ideal for a consultng carrer, but Business Ethics could be more intersting for you as a person.
I hope that I helped you somehow with this complex decision. Good Luck

LoL What a nice joke ... boasting about Warwick again. Rubbish Uni that accepts a Moron but rejects a lot of well-qualified people.

Hey there...

Well to be honest, for Masters in Management, the top b schools in the UK are LBS, LSE, Imperial, Cass. After this, comes Warwick, Bath, Manchester and Durham. Being an international student myself, who has done his MIM from one of the top MIM porgrammes-ESCP Europe, i can suggest out of the schools you mentioned, Grenoble can be a good choice . Grenoble is a pretty respected school in France and has good employer connections. It has multiple campuses across the globe and currently ranks 13th in the prestigious FT MIM Ranking.

Besides, UK is suffering from immigration-related issues, thereby making it difficult for graduates to find a job in UK post graduation. So you may want to check on that. Plus, France is also having a stable economy with a good VISA and post study work scheme in place that allows students to leverage the degrees full potential and engage themselves in full time employment.

If you are only considering the UK then Durham can be a good choice, it has a good reputation and an established curriculum.

Regarding curriculum and teaching, Since MIM is more theoretical based, the quality of the programme will be more or less same in all schools, so basically look at other varying issues such as brand, post grad situation and so on.
