How is Nottingham university business school ?

Dear Ankit,
Congratulations!!!!!!

I also had few admits form UK business schools, including Nottingham. But I have to rethink. I talked to few students from different universities.

The reality is that only MBA can not fetch you job as it is in India. There is no such concept of Placements in UK.

We will spend around 25-30 lakhs (one year salary included).
The job market is not in a very good condition. You have to try for job on your own.

You can ask university about previous batches placements and simultaneously check the web sites of university.

But I feel you will not find details of jobs or placements.

We will get 02 years work permit. But it is possible to live in UK only with some decent job. The living standards are very high.

If you are quite young, say less than 25 years of age, then you can think of struggle and survival.

You also cross link your current profile with the MBA. How you can increase your value for the employers.

But first of all think about the money also. How you will manage the funding.

If you have more time then give best shot for Top MBA schools in UK. The great brand names have good value in market.

Regards

Hi guyz ,

I am Jasneet from New delhi, and have 3.5 yrs of exp (IT)
I am looking for a 1 yr mba program..

I applied in 4 colleges in UK.

1. Durham business school -- got a rejection from thr .. stating that i am short on experience.

2. Leeds business school - again got rejection , reason the same as above.

3.Nottingham university business school - I got a conditional offer from there .. condition being IELTS >= 7.

4. Birmingham university business school -- Decision still awaited.


So guyz now my question is ...

How is nottingham University business school (NUBS) ?

Does anybody know about the education over thr .. the tie ups of the university with companies ? job placements ?

any alumni member from thr ?

Please share ur views/ opinions/ suggestions ..

I m confused whether i shall go thr or not ...

Thanks ...



I know that the university has an international reputation and is popular in the UK. When I was going through the process I would contact their students and their alumni directly instead of speaking to them on Open Days to get their opinion on things.

Hi all,
Its nearly one year since, i put some questions on this post. btw i enrolled for Nottingham MBA. And its been an good experience. Frankly I dont know how it would have been anywhere else.
@Ankit, If you are doing marketing and all i think MS is a good option, i heard from few friends in aston that they are good in that. Overall it depends how much value, one can extract from these courses in UK, from career point of view, in the long run,that too.
@deepali
Nottingham is way way better than sheffield, I've been to sheffield. It is a nice city, but their MBA is a joke, and i am not kidding. Not that I am biased towards nottingham but frankly theres no comparison, unless nottingham has fallen down on rankings, as it has.

I know many people who have been to Nottingham University and had no problems finding jobs afterwards. Nottingham Business School is considered as a very strong university in the UK.

Whether a school has moved up or down the rankings is not THAT vital in my eyes, because recruiters' opinions will anyway be a at least a few years "behind". So really, I wouldn't listen to the newest hype about this school or that. I would trust the little older data as what most employers will think.

It's kind of confusing. Especially because NTU is home of the "Nottingham Business School"

if at all you are trying for UK try to get through in jan 2011 intake weather its NU or NTU since they might be scrapping PSW in april 2011 and if they close PSW then it will be really difficult to stay in uk after your degree

yes it is its Post Study Work Permit. and if you cant get through this jan then surely look for MBA than MSc since MBA will expose you to better opportunities then MSc even in India.

Although PSW is still there but UKBA is planning to scrap this from April 2011. there is no official news for this but this bill is very much under review. and according to most of the university officials, it is very likely that they are going to stop PSW.

The scrapping of the PSW is true - and will become valid from April 2011. They're trying to bring a cap to immigration etc etc - which is quite a pain really. I'm in the UK right now, and will be applying for my PSW by next month! Quite anxious about it!

And regarding Nottingham University Business School, it is supposed to be quite good, and it is not the same as Nottingham Trent University!
