    I've been offered a place to do Entrepreneurship & Innovation Management at Loughborough and Entrepreneurship, Innovation & Technology at Strathclyde. I'm unsure as to which university to firm so please help me out

    Loughborough

    Pros
    Ranked 7th in the CUG rankings (How is it higher than Warwick & UCL??)
    High student satisfaction
    London location (course is offered at the London campus which is exclusively for postgrads)
    Business school ranked higher than Strathclyde

    Cons
    More expensive - akin to doing a postgrad at Imperial or Warwick
    Not quite well known outside of the UK/No brand name
    A lot of internationals from China on the course - about 70%!

    Strathcylde

    Pros
    Internationally well known business school
    Actually like the modules at Strathclyde
    Affordable

    Cons
    Location: Glasgow instead of London.

    Which one has the better career services overall?

    If you've studied at either university, it would be great to hear your views/reviews overall.


    Thanks!

    There seem to be some differences between the courses. Make a list of what you want to get out of the experience and then choose the one that fits your needs better. No one on here can tell you which one is better for you.

    Well both courses are perfect which makes it really hard to choose. Which one has better employment rates?

    Either check their websites or email and ask. Just bear in mind though that you'll be as employable as you make yourself. Not because of your uni.

    Asking them how employable their courses are is prob not the best idea as they would be biased and just tell you the good stuff.

    Asking in this forum is a good idea as actual students know best.

    Not quite. Unis have to disclose where their students end up which will give you an idea of whether the course leads to things you want to do. The chances of finding actual students on here doing or who have done the same course are slim and they too may be biased. Remember that people do masters courses for a variety of reasons and the OP is the best person to know what those are and what they're looking to get out of the course. Unis want theirs alumni to do well because what they end up doing reflects on us as a uni.
