    Well I have accepted Cranfield. However, IMD is my first preference. So, if I get from IMD then I ill join that else Cranfield.
    I would have joined Oxford if I had got a good scholarship.

    Regarding Cranfield presentation, It is tough because you have to compete it in 3 mins. So, do a lot of practice and make sure you complete in 3 mins

    I got an offer from Cranfield, MBS, Said, and ISB. I have discarded ISB and MBS for various reasons but a bit confused about Cranfield and Said. I don’t think Cranfield has that much brand value in India. However, most of the Indians have got decent jobs in UK/Europe – I have spoken to few and checked LinkedIn profile. Oxford will be almost double the expense but what I am more worried is about coming back to India after my MBA. Oxford placement seems to be non-existant.

    Any suggestion will be helpful

    The Cranfield school of Management profile page ( on BusinessBecause has a lot of information about the school in addition to stories from within the school and by students.

    The school has been closely following the developments around the post-study VIsa cap for International students and is quite concerned about it,
