      Hi there,

      your profile looks good - especially if you achieve a GMAT score of 700. I recommend you, however, to deeply screen the Imperial College MIM website and ask the school to bring you in contact with alumni and current students. they can tell you better what it's like to study there.

      As for other schools in the UK, I recommend you to use our Search Filter and chose UK as "country, full-time as "teaching mode" and Masters in General Management as "Program type".

      Then screen thee schools according to accreditation and rankings (FT MIM Ranking and - if the school's exposure is important for you - also MBA Rankings).

      Then you have a short-list that you can screen very deeply as for career services that the schools offer.

      Best wishes
