What better reason for picking a business school!

Only the other day I bought a Proton car because the garage was at the end of the road. I took my girlfriend for a Valentine's Maccy Ds because there was one on the way to the station.

You get the picture. Excuse the facetiousness but it really isn't a terribly well-regarded business school and I thik you would be better off not wasting your time and money.

Is it even accredited?

SC to Anon (#1)

If you're serious about doing an MBA, then pick your school carefully. It's not fashionable to say it, but brand and reputation does count for a lot in consulting and other industries. Having an MBA from LBS, Cranfield, Warwick (in the UK) will potentially open doors and then it's up to you to impress. You ought to think of it as an investment in yourself - and then assess the return on that investment once you rejoin the workplace. You're taking a year or two out - even if you do it part-time it'll dominate your evenings and weekends - and you want to see the investment in time, effort and significant amounts of cash bear fruit.

Going to a school that doesn't have a great reputation and, more importantly, doesn't have an alumni network you can plug into while you're there and once you're out will leave you kicking yourself at a wasted opportunity.

Proximity to work is a lousy selection criterion.

It depends on why you want to do it. I assume that as you are posting the question on this site, it is because you want to move into a strat consulting firm. This MBA will not help at all if that is your aim.

Try LBS, Cass Business School and Tanaka (Imperial) if you need somewhere in London. Going to Southbank will be a complete (and expensive!) waste of time

Hi, all, thanks for the advice. I have to confess that proximity is not the only reason why I consider London South Bank; I've got a sponsorship to do it for free with that university, which is a huge incentive for me. But probably I should consider how to invest my time better......
