Grenoble is much stronger as a business school.

I would be wary of any school in the UK that does not award it's own degrees. The recent UKBA changes have hit this sector very hard and it is possible they will not be able to enrollinternational students by 2012.

LSBF in UK is a [...] college. Its degrees have no value in UK, what to talk about internationally. The LSBF has [...] credentials and sensible students with some intelligence should stay away from it. If one has to take up GGSB MBA, then do it in France campus. No point doing it in LSBF.
New logo for LSBF : "Fools are welcome" !!

Can anybody tell me about the MBA rank of OXFORDBROOK UNIVERSITY in compare with GRENOBEL (GGSB) university?


I recommend to learn the correct names of those schools before you apply. Oxford Brookes is a former polytechnic. I would still prefer it to LSBF as it has the AMBA accreditation. Grenoble Graduate School of Business (GGSB) is a good business school (much better than the other two mentioned), but you should study in Grenoble to benefit from the quality of its program.


Oxford brookes also have AMBA and EFMD certification now ...

Oxford Brooks is a good university but not very highly ranked. but i would strongly recommend you to opt for a public funded university and not any private college or institution in the uk

Hi its "Bradford University School of Management" its one of teh highly reputed MBA program offered in the UK. Its among top 100 in the world with very wide range of electives, which means that you can choose your own specialisation. Faculties here are highly qualified and well renowned. Post MBA opportunities are also very promising provided you have a good background and experience.
I can tell you all this as i am an alumni of Bradford University

Hi sassan,

the ones I found with a quick search are
MBA Oil & Gas Management from Robert Gordon University Aberdeen (www.rgu.ac.uk/business-management-and-accounting/study-optio… and from the University of Liverpool the MSc International Management (Oil & Gas) (www.uol.ohecampus.com/index.php?mod=dcp&act=navigationindex&…. If you need more information about the latter please let me know, I am studying a MSc with the UoL at the moment.

Hi sassan,

I can not say anything about the IBC as I never heard of them before. But you have to be aware that the Middlesex University is just validating the degree, the content will be delivered by the IBC. It is the same model which was used by the University of Wales as a degree validating institution. This lead to so much abuse that they cancelled it. So even if Midddlesex is a solid UK institution, it is no guarantee for the quality of the degree.

RGU is a normal Scottish university and might have closer connection to the industry due to its proximity to the UK - oil fields.

UoL offers distance learning and the name of the university might be more recognized from a global perspective.

Where are you located? Do you know people working in this field that might be able to offer you advice?

tnx mate for advise, that was very helpful, I'm based in UAE, in fact my plan is to apply for Bradford university school of management as it's a very qualified university and quite well known , but in parallel I just tried to find out the same qualified uni. as bradford is but in Oil and Gas field, at the end I think I should go for my decision on bradford as the other uni. which are providing management on oil and gas program are not as well as bradford!! anyway tnx for ur comments

MBA at LSBF - Beware
Mon Feb 06, 2012 02:06 PM
I almost made a mistake of trying to see what LSBF has to offer. I contacted the campus to learn about their program and was given a personal advisor who responded to my queries very promptly until I inquired who validates and accredits the degrees. He mentioned it was the University of Wales. I knew from my googling around that the University of Wales has been abolished (Oct 2011) due to numerous scandals and have effectively withdrawn all its accreditations!!! I asked him what happens now, and lo and behold, the silence treatment!! Beware - before its too late!!!

Sassan and Sweetowski, sorry buy you are very incorrect here. I've spoken to Middlesex University and the course is validated and delivered by them. They are working with IBC to bring commercial oil and gas focus to the course as well as the usal academic content, so to me it sound a lot better than many other oil gas mba providers who are only academic. I've taken some of IBC other oil and gas course via my company and really really good. My company is looking to sponsor some people on the MBA due to the reputation IBC have for quality and they think better than others. Have a look at IBC as well their address is www.ibc-academy.com . You should be careful to get fact right! Steve

That is true, have to apologize here. Don't remember how it looked like 3 months ago, but maybe I just overlooked the big "delivered and validated by Middlesex University".

The London School of Business and Finance Global MBA now has validation. After the closure of the University of Wales it's now offering the London Met MBA (www.londonmet.ac.uk/pgprospectus/courses/master-of-business-… at a 17% premium (www.lsbf.org.uk/students/fees-funding.html).

LSBF has greater marketing resources, of course. But which folk here would rather study at London Met rather than at LSBF?
