I personally feel the MSc in Management is a cash cow for unis and lacks academic rigour and is not generally well recognised against MBAs or other specialised MScs like Finance/Marketing/Risk Management/Operations Research etc. If you have some idea as to what industry and the nature of work you're aspiring to do, it is better you opt for a specialised MSc or a MBA. Having been in management consulting and working as Vice President Strategy for a bank, I would rather hire someone with a MBA, Masters in Economics or any other specialised MSc rather than the plain MSc Management.

I think both universities are Tier 2 unis in the UK and it wouldn't really matter from a job perspective.

How about the courses like global strategy and innovation or international business, etc.?

IMO, LUBS is more regarded than Nottingham. Only because of the company links the business school has and has a good cohort of international students which is good for networking.

Does pursuing MSc Business Analytics from the University of Southampton be able to create an opportunity for an international student?
