The UK may be home to some of the world’s most respected academic institutions, but that does not mean that studying in the region necessarily breaks the bank. There are many highly ranked business schools that afford affordable masters in management degrees. And quality is assured by their accreditations from agencies such as AACSB and AMBA.
The fees are typically higher for international students but for domestic candidates especially, there are bargains to be had at UK business schools. And many graduates report a strong return on their investment anyway, thanks in no small part to schools’ relationships with leading employers in the UK, which is a commercial and cultural destination, particularly the English capital city, London.
Some schools have built work experience placements into their MiM programs, a good route to a full-time job in the UK. For the best, but affordable, MiM courses in the UK, see below.
