    Hello,

    I am planning to apply to the following management programs in the UK

    MSc International management at King's college
    MSc management at UCL
    MSc management at Imperial

    My criteria is to secure a decent job in the UK after I graduate, preferably through campus placement, as I won't have much time after I graduate to look for job, considering my Visa.

    I'm anyways going to apply to all of them including LBS (if I get a decent GMAT score), I was wondering that King's and and UCL, although ranked among top universities in the UK, are not as well known for business management studies and don't have accreditation as well, infact not even ranked in the FT or any other rankings list. So I was wondering, incase I don't end up receiving an offer from Imperial (or LBS), are the other two worth giving a shot?

    If there are any other better options, please let me know, I'm open to all suggestions. I'm preferring London city and not outside, unless something is perfectly suitable to my requirements.

    I am from India, and have a little bit of experience as an entrepreneur as well.

    Thank you for that. Are there any other options I can look at? I dont qualify for imperial's requirements. I have applied for Marketing MSc in the following unis:

    MSc Strategic marketing - Cranfield
    MSc Advanced marketing - Lancaster
    MSc Marketing and business analysis - Edinburgh

    Apart from the above, are there any options that have good employer connections?

    Hi! I replied your post in a previous thread. Hope you've seen it? I'll put the same reply here:

    Hi Suranaronak16,

    Hope you are good! I see you have an array of top Unis in your sights, which is just as important, if you plan to start a career in the UK or within the EU. I think I'll start with your "easy" questions first! It is a wholly postgraduate university, hence Cranfield is research intensive and has strong industry links. Your MSc thesis is likely to be a research area for a company. Many of our students have gone on to be employed by these companies. I would however state that as much as possible, the focus has to be on your studies first, as Cranfield could be quite challenging and intensive.

    I checked the class profile for Strategic Marketing for 2016/2017 session- the youngest age is 22! The average age is 25 years, so you should fit in quite nicely. I am 28 and doing a PhD here, with a year to go. So, yes, as we are a wholly postgraduate university the student crowd is not the same as a University with undergraduates. However, the student mix is quite uniform certainly, not too old!

    Starting a career in the UK after graduation is dependent on a number of key elements. Firstly, you have to have excellent MSc grades. This is most important, as it is quite competitive. The rest should fall into place. You will certainly have industry contacts in Cranfield, you will meet potential employers at the Career Fair (over 100 attended the last time I was there) and the possibility of a company-sponsored research thesis will give you further opportunities. . More importantly, you will have a group project whcih is a marketing consultancy project that simulates a real-life consultancy assignment. This is from a company and you develop practical skills here and meet with industry experts during the project period and final client presentation.

    Finally, I hope you get the admission from the Universities you have applied to! All the best and keep us informed!

    Best,
    Cranfield TSR Rep.

    Hi there,

    Thank you for your reply. I have got an offer letter from Cranfield for the same. I wanted to know if there are options to work part-time while I study at Cranfield.

    They'll most likely expect you to study a full time qualification without employment - Cranfield is a top graduate school, you'll get out what you put in as the old adage goes. Part time work in most cases can create a conflict of priorities - don't waste your time not maximising your Cranfield experience...
