Hi guys, I have offers from both the above as well as Notts for the same course and B'ham for International Business but have narrowed it down to Manchester & UCL as I think they're the strongest of the bunch. I'm also waiting to hear back from Imperial but not expecting an offer given its already June.

What do you guys feel would be the best choice and why? Personally I feel a bit torn, I think Manchester would offer a nice student life environment, however UCL is perhaps the better options careers-wise as: 1) its mgmt dpt is based in Canary Wharf 2) even despite this London is a bigger business/financial hub than MCR and so better for career 3) UCL's reputation is perhaps stronger than MCR's and thus carries more weight with employers etc. I need to make a decision fairly soon (less than 3 weeks) so any advice/insights would be much appreciated! I was pretty much in the Manchester camp until getting the UCL offer made me think twice, particularly in terms of what would be best career-wise. As you can imagine from the course title I'm generally looking to get into (business/management) consulting.

UCL:
- Strong reputation in business and management
- Easier time applying to internships and graduate positions (location, location, location)
- High living expenses

Manchester:
- Solid business school reputation
- Additional travel time to and fro from London for interviews (where most of the positions are based)
- Lower living expenses

While Manchester certainly would not hinder your career growth, UCL has the stronger reputation in business and its location would streamline job applications.
