    Hi All,

    Having graduated in 2006 and now with 10 yes in the big wide world, I am looking to enroll on an MBA Course.

    I am looking at either applying to Birmingham or Oxford Brookes. Both are accredited courses with Birmingham having the lauded Triple Crown.

    Oxford Brookes offers blended learning with on campus time, whilst Birmingham is entirely online.

    Costs wise Birmingham is £18k ish with Oxford Brookes at £15K.

    Any views would be appreciated on either course or indeed on similar courses.

    Cheers,
    Nick

    The "lauded Triple Crown" doesn't mean anything in practice. Any one accreditation is sufficient.

    Unless you go to a 'top' university no-one cares where an MBA is from, so the decision will come down to cost, module content, study method and proximity (if you have to travel), and those are all subjective. Can you get your employer to pay for it?

    Thanks for the feedback. I don't disagree. Birmingham seems more case study focused which makes it of particular interest. Cost wise I'll be footing the bill.
