    Hello I am a currently doing bachelor of business administration from India and I will complete it by July 2015.
    I don't have work experience .

    I want to pursue master in management abroad . I have ielts 6.5 overall with listening 7.0 reading 6.5 speaking 6.0 writing 6.0 .

    I saw the master in management in UK is completely different from most of them in Europe like France or Portugal .
    UK universities only have 1 year master courses as compared to 2 year in Europe and also no internship or specialisation in UK one.

    I wanted to ask is it worth doing master in management from UK university as I don't have much work experience and it has a 1 year course without an internship and also there are too much visa restrictions . They don't allow international students to stay in UK for long for finding jobs.

    Also there are 2 year courses in Europe like France and Portugal . The courses are really good and also with an internship and in English language . But their home language is necessary to fetch a job there.

    I saw in Australia university of Melbourne is good , it also has a 2 year course but it has really high fees I can't see good Return on investment there .

    What do you suggest in UK even if I get in Warwick , imperial , Manchester and do a course is it good?
    Because I think I need some experience so a longer duration course is good for me? Is it right?

    I have shortlisted my options that I think are good so please tell me are they good?

    Audencia (international master in management )
    Grenoble gsb( mib)
    Uni Melbourne ( mim )
    Manchester ( master in international business and management) no internship
    Uni Edinburgh (msc management ) no internship
    Ieseg som ( mim)
    Nova sbe ( mim)
    Warwick and imperial ( mim) no internship

    Can u suggest me which is good because I m confused and can u put me the link of your e-book where I can read it for free?

        Hi there,

        I see from your question that you haven't read my eBook and internalized the logic.

        I am afraid to say that the question does not make sense to me. Think about it: Why should I "recommend" "someone" to do this? There is no general "You should do this" or "You should do that". It all depends on your profile and preferences.

        Masters in General Management are pre-experience programs (with a few exceptions). So, people who just graduated have an opportunity to study an advanced program and gain managemernt knowledge (plus the other fundamental benefits that I describe in my eBook in the Chapters "Career benefits" and "Experience benefits" ) without having work experience - and improve their chances of finding a decent job.

        Does this make sense for YOU, specifically? Read the Chapter "Motivation" in my eBook.

        If you answered the question with a YES and if you reflected on WHAT EXACTLY YOU NEED, then you think about which school and program. Does it make sense FOR YOU to go to the UK? Does it make sense to do a 1-Year program? Does it make sense to choose a program with or without internships?
        Read chapter "Specification" and "Analysis of programs" in my eBook.

        I am happy to help out but I want the MIM Compass users to internalize my logic to find MIM programs first. Then we can move on together.

        Best wishes

      Hi there,

      it is true that you find 2-year program more in continental Europe but you can find 1-year programs there as well. I would rather categorize between those that require a first degree in business and those who don't.

      Second, you should analyze your own goals first and then the programs to see to what degree the programs match your goals. For this, you should take soem hours and properly work through my MIM eBook already. It will help you also to compare the UK-schools you mentioned.

      Best wishes
