Which MSc's are better than pre-experience 'Freshers' MBAs?I had an interesting message from someone on Find-MBA about pre-experience MSc's and I thought my reply might be useful for others. The other person wrote:

"I have done my bachelors degree in engineering and at present I am running my Dad's company. I feel that if I have more exposure I will be able to run it better. That's why I want to do a postgraduate course in the UK. I went through, researching a lot of colleges for their MBAs, but most good colleges want work experience. Then I came across the MSc. But I am not sure if an MSc degree will really help me."
Here is my reply:--
First, don't limit yourself to the UK. Business is international and, unless your Dad's firm is in the UK and does not export, you will benefit from an international education. MSc degrees are very well respected, especially from schools with international accreditation. Yesterday I noticed this excellent US degree offered in Germany www.gisma.com/executiveeducation.html?&L=1 There is also a fairly new programme at London Business School, which has the top MBA programme: www.london.edu/programmes/mastersinmanagement.html…
The best established MSc programmes in business are all ranked by the FT. Our of 65 programmes, 13 are in the UK. rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-… The best value is at the non-UK public universities like Aalto, Erasmus, Kozminski, Lausanne, Louvain, Maastricht, St. Gallen, Solvay, Stockholm and Vienna. Those are ten of the top MSc programmes worldwide and you can see from the salaries that they produce very high quality business managers.
