Help me decide University in UK for Master in Marketing please....!!!

  • Posted by - eleni_di - on 16 June 2013 - 7:42pm


    I made my applications for Master in Marketing and I have offers from Aston, Bradford, Exeter, Loughbrough, Southampton and St. Andrews Universities and I need to decide which will be my final decision for entry in September 2013.

    I would like to ask you if you have anything to comment about these universities.

    I know that Aston and Bradford have the triple accreditation of AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA and this is very positive! Moreover, these 2 universitites are in the QS business ranking for the 200 best business schools.
    For sure, I prefer some programmes among these 6 universities like Exeter's Programme and it was voted like the university of the year 2013 but I do care for reputation in general, not only in UK and for the career services after the master.

    Through my personal search from rankings, questioning friends and reading blogs I understood that St. Andrews has better reputation and Aston University come next among these six...

    Any comment will be useful !!

    Thank you in advance.

    Kind Regards,

      So, which one have you decided and based on what have you decided it? I am asking those questions because I have been doing same thing for school selection in marketing based on my educational background plus work experience. By the way, I am from China.

      It would be appreciated if you could share it.

        I would like to thank you for youw answer!
        It is very helpfull, indeed. and the answer that you suggest me to read!

        After reading some of your answers to other subjects I have already asked the Universities about the companies and the career services.

        Do you have something else to comment or any other specific advice for these 6 Unis..?

        Thank you.

        Kind Regards,

          Hi Eleni,

          have you read both of my comments at the supposed link above? Both together should help you to analyze the schools quite well and become inspired to develop further criteria by which you contrast these institutions and programs.

          Best wishes
