Hello

Can anybody recommend a solid post-graduate course in the uk that opens up opportunities to high level consultancy? The m.phil at oxford looks like the ticket, an mba is another option but at twenty five it seems a bit premature.

Cheers

What exactly do you mean by 'high level consultancy'?

Hi, in a recent project I was working with top level execs and finding my business theory limited. My degree is an analytical subject rather than business or economics so my only business qualification is an A Level. I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a course that would further my business theory and open more doors to this type of work as I'd like to do more!

Cheers

Top level execs are not known for their grasp of leading-edge management theory or interest in the debate of academic nuances. They are known for bold extrapolation/wild BS'ing on the basis of a few half-remembered factoids.

In this respect, a distance-learning post-grad diploma in management studies will provide all the theory you need, without the high course and opportunity costs of a full-time Masters. You can top it up by reading accessible business press, such as the Harvard Business Review, and anything by Martin Lukes.

The M.Phils are if you want to go on to a PhD and then an academic career, but they are expressly not recommended for those wanting to go into practice. The admissions tutors will guide you towards alternative programmes if they suspect you are looking for a practitioner career or don't have evidence of prior academic interest in business/management.

M.Sc and MA programmes would be more suitable for your needs. For example, LBS has just launched an M.Sc programme. You could also apply to US MBA programmes as these take younger candidates than those in the UK and Europe.
