Choosing an MBA

The best place to start in choosing an MBA is the Association of MBAs (AMBA). AMBA accredit over 150 UK and global MBA programmes and set high standards related to student mix (i.e. a good balance of UK, European and International students) good staff student ratios, high entry requirements (students need to have a good first degree but significant experience too), flexibility and access to top academic staff. Other global Business School accreditation bodies are AACSB (based in the USA) and EQUIS (based in Europe).

Fees for many MBAs are expensive (£18,000 plus is common for AMBA accredited schools) and you tend to get what you pay for in terms of career progression and salary, student support, knowledge and networks.

In short, prospective MBA students should do their research on course content, flexibility, accreditation and quality control, academic expertise and career support, fees and scholarships (some UK MBAs offer fee discounts for their own graduates or for UK students to help ensure the right global student mix), facilities, career progression and facilities.
