Haha thats alright, To be honest its decent but far from the best, but it depends. What are your grades/predicted grades? It depends on how you feel though, if you like the university and course then that can play a factor, as outside of the top business schools there is little difference really and going to one you will enjoy and therefore do better at both the degree and with extra curriculars could be a plus

Well I'd say Manchester's Business school is more respected but its really upto you, I'd just go to whichever you prefer and if you the course at Birmingham I'd go there

University of East Anglia and University of Kent both have BBB/BBC offers and are often ranked as top 35 business schools, not amazing but respectable

LSE and Kings College London are two of the best unis for business. UCL is good too (in London) but only does Information Management for Business (which I'm currently doing) - it's basically half computing and half management.
Royal Holloway is near London and also is good for business/management.

Sorry to say but Herts uni is NOT GOOD. Aston is good but there are MANY MORE better universities that do business. Here is the following list of universities and courses (the names of the courses might not be exactly correct as I am doing this from memory) that I would advise you to consider:

Oxford - Economics and Management
Warwick - Management, International Business
LSE - Management
Kings - Business Management
Bath - Business Management
Nottingham - Management
Edinburgh - Business Studies
Loughborough - Business Studies
Royal Holloway - Business Management
UCL - Information Management for Business
City - Management

Don't put a lot of faith in university rankings, especially not the subject rankings. A lot of people will say "oh well university x has a good business department" when in fact the university AS A WHOLE is inferior. Employers don't care what the department is like when it's a degree like business/management, they care about you and what university you went to. For instance a lot of people rate City's management degree because of Cass Business School, but City itself is actually quite bad and their management degree is not affiliated to Cass because Cass is only concerned with postgraduate. Similarly Durham's business degree is NOT ACTUALLY AT DURHAM, it's in their crappy Stockton campus.

Most importantly do research yourself. A lot.
Can you update this so it is up-to-date for 2015 applicants, for me, I am applying for Business Management, I have already written the first draft for PS and I am now finalising my university choices on UCAS.
The update will be much appreciated. :chaplin:

I haven't finalised my university choices yet however what I do have current are, in no specific order:
1. King's College London
2. London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)
3. Oxford

Universities that I have removed from my university choices are:
1. University of Bath
2. University of St Andrews
3. Loughborough university
4. Durham university
5. The university of Warwick
6. University of Westminster
4. University of Edinburgh

As you may see I'm in actuality not that certain on what uni to add, do I fill up and have 5 or whatever and leave it as it is. On the other hand I do know that I want to go to LSE because the course sounds suitable for me and it is Business Mathematics and Statistics, I would enjoy it so much. Oxford has the legendary reputation with it and to do Economics and Management which is the name of the course I need to take TSA ox test hmmm.
What about you?

Hi guys,

My name is Chris and I am a graduate from the University Campus Suffolk (UCS) Business School and I can highly recommend the Business courses at UCS. UCS is now sitting 44th in the Guardian Subject Tables after jumping up over 40 places in one year... so if you are looking for a Business School that is on the up then I would consider UCS to be among your choices.

If you would like any info about the content of the course then feel free to ask away or post on the UCS thread.

All the best with your decisions,
Chris

If I had to decide between going to King's College and Cass for (Business) Management, what would you guys advice? What paddy mentioned above with the good department in a University that doesn't have the best reputation makes a lot of sense.. But does anyone else think that way or is that just a personal opinion?
On job applications Cass is seperate to City regardless.

If it's such a concern, than your mind is made up.
