What is my best option for a MSc in Management?Watch
I recently graduated with a 1st from a BEng in Sports Technology from Loughborough University.
During my year in industry, I realised that I'd really like to go into a Product Management role. Now, seeing as my BEng is so niche, a degree in Management seems like a good option to widen my reach to lots of opportunities and hopefully land a role at a great company.
I just turned 24 but I'm looking to start my MSc in 2021 (my requests for deferral have been accepted). This is so that I can save enough money to cover all the costs.
Below are my options:
a) Imperial: (12-month program, £29,500) - spend all my savings for it, and take on the £11k government loan. Wonder whether the salary as a PM would make paying £30k worth it...
b) Rotterdam: Need to take on the pre-master for a year at Rotterdam Uni because of lack of credits in Research Methods to then continue on to their 12-month management program. It is less money intensive, pre-master is part-time so I could continue working, but overall would take 24 months.
c) Maastricht (12-month program, £2k) - least favourite program, but very affordable
d) Warwick (12-month program, £29,500) - nicer program than Maastricht but if I'm gonna pay that tuition anyway.. I might as well go to Imperial
I'd really like your opinions to help me weigh out what the best option is! (or maybe I haven't even thought of something that could be awesome)
Need more help on going postgrad?
If you want to do Project Management then I'd advise against doing a Management MSc, you'd be better off studying Project Management which will be a lot cheaper and more specialised in what you want to do.
