    Any kind of Oxbridge business-related curse will be heavily over-subscribed,so a 2:2 certainly won't cut it. Even if you ace a Masters at Oxford Brookes, that's still not going to make you competitive for Oxbridge entry on its own.

    Your best bet is to get into a professional role as soon s possible after completing your first Masters and get a few years of serious business experience behind you, working into management. At that point, you can look at another Masters - maybe an MBA. You may even find an employer willing to sponsor you.

    It sounds like you're only wanting to go there because of the name, which is a bad idea. As above, go get a job after the MSc and think about an MBA once you've got a few years' experience.
