    I have received offers from:

    Manchester: MSc International Business and Management
    Lancaster: MSc International Business and Strategy
    Birmingham: MSc International Business

    Lancaster is ranked highest for business studies and overall ranking. However Lancaster is not as big as Manchester and Birmingham. and I have two friends who studying at lancaster and told me the uni life is quite boring.

    Manchester is bigger and maybe more well known/reputable than Birmingham, but in league table it placed on 28th which Birmingham ranked 17th and 13th for business management.

    I want to go to a uni which is reputable and has good employment opportunities.

    I would appreciate any advice anyone has!

    League tables mean nothing. Those unis are all reputable and will offer broadly similar opportunities. Without looking at the syllabus I suspect the course contents will be almost identical. Lancaster's MBA and the Management School is very well regarded (although I don't know anything about the other two).

    If you're only studying for a year I'd suggest uni life isn't/shouldn't be important. Good luck whatever you decide!

    Well both Birmingham & Manchester B schools are highly reputed and have the triple credit accreditation. However, if we consider employment statistics Birmingham has an edge due to its near London Location. Moreover, Manchester offers major placements in consulting & financial services whereas Birmingham has greater part of its students joining IB or marketing profiles. I would suggest that you go through the alumni profiles of both b schools & you may also connect up on social media before taking a final call.

    Lancaster has triple accreditation too, although that doesn't mean anything.

    Thanks a lot ! I now more prefer to manchester and lancaster than birmingham. Even there is only one year studying for master but i believe that uni life is still important for me. As you said they are all reputable, i just have to make decision either studying at city or campus. Again, thanks for your recommendation !!

    Have you thought of Manchester Metropolitan University if you want a more applied course that will get you a job at the end of it? MSc Marketing or MSc Marketing (Communications). You work with clients on a live client brief. Very applied. A very in-depth digital marketing unit also - taught by people that have worked in industry and are up-to-date. Also have International Business Management.
