Dear Sir, dear Madame,
within the next one or two years I am looking for a MBA program specializing in the area of Intl. Marketing to enhance my knowledege and prepare for self-employment later on. Are there programs with a special focus on Marketing?

What are the approx. costs for that and is there financial aid available. Otherwise what are the possibilities financing an MBA program without having big savings?

With kind regards

Answer from Warwick Business School:

Dear enquirer

Thanks for your enquiry. The Warwick MBA is a generalist programme, which elevates the contribution that you can make to any business, whether you are employed or running your own organisation. The key skills you will acquire whilst on the programme include techniques in finance, operations, human resource management and strategic planning and information management - all important for your future, I'm sure you'll agree.

However, whilst our core modules give you the essential building blocks, the wide choice of elective modules will allow you to specialise. Some of the modules currently on offer which may be of interest to you include Market Analysis, European Business, International Business, International Marketing and Marketing Strategy.

The costs vary according to which variant you choose (full-time, modular, evening or distance learning). Please visit our web-site for these (www.wbs.ac.uk), where you will also find information about financing your studies.

Finally, in addition to a first degree, we look for a minimum of 3 years' managerial work experience (4 years if studying on one of the part-time variants).

I hope that this answers your questions. Please do get in touch with us (warwickmba@wbs.ac.uk) if we can help further.

Best wishes

Answer from Cranfield:

A good MBA programme like Cranfield's will prepare you for employment in any industry or for starting your own business. Our programme includes a compulsory core course in business start-up as well as elective courses in entrepreneurship. If marketing is your particular interest, you can also gain exemption from all but two of the final examinations of the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Diploma at Cranfield by taking selected electives. We can arrange for you to take the additional two exams here and you can thus gain both MBA and CIM qualification at the same time.

The fees for our full-time programme are currently 23,000 pounds sterling (approx 35,000 euros). Living costs for the one year programme would amount to at least 10,000 sterling (15,000 euros). We do have a few half-fee scholarships for exceptional students, and we also have a loan scheme with the HSBC Bank.

Your qualification meets our requirements, but you would need three years' postgraduate work experience, and you will need to take GMAT (aim for a score of 600 or more, particularly if you wish to be considered for a scholarship) and IELTS (band 7) or TOEFL (250).

Answer from Manchester Business School:

Thank you for your enquiry.

The MBA at Manchester Business School is a general MBA covering all the main business disciplines. It is, however, possible to take electives in the field of marketing and therefore specialise to a certain extent.

The cost of the MBA for 2003 is £24,000 for EU residents. Each year Manchester Business School offers 10 scholarships of £5,000 for applicants to the Full-time MBA programme. These scholarships are awarded on merit and to qualify, applications must be received by 31st March.

On the Full-time programme, students tend to finance their MBA through one of the preferential loan schemes available.

Career Development Loans (CDL) - are available through a partnership arrangement between the Department for Education and Employment and four major UK banks: Barclays Bank, the Co-operative Bank, Clydesdale Bank and The Royal Bank of Scotland. Full-time students may borrow up to £8,000 towards the cost of fees and living expenses. The Department for Education and Employment pays the interest on the loan while you're training and you do not have to start repaying until one month after the end of your course. Full scheme details are available on the CDL website: www.lifelonglearning.co.uk/cdl/index.htm

HSBC Loan Scheme - The scheme covers all tuition fees and living expenses up to the greater of £5,000 or two-thirds of any salary earned in the 12 months prior to the start of a course. Interest is charged at 2% above HSBC Bank?s base rate for the duration of the loan. Other special features of the loan include no guarantee or security requirements, a repayment holiday until six months after graduation, no penalties for early repayment, no fees and structured loan installments to match individual student needs.

HSBC will assess a student loan application once the student has accepted a place on an MBS programme. Please note that the final decision to grant the loan is made by HSBC.

More details are available from HSBC Bank plc, King Street Branch, PO Box 360 100 King Street, Manchester M60 2HD, tel. 08457 404 404, fax 0161 910 2003

In order to be considered for an MBA at Manchester we require a minimum of two years relevant work experience, a good undergraduate degree, GMAT score of 600 or above and and English language test such as IELTS or TOEFL if applicable. In addition you would be expected to come to the School for an interview and complete one of our application forms.

Please do not hesitate to contact me should you require any further information or assistance.

Answer from Open University Business School:

MBA with Marketing focus

The Open Univeristy Business School (OUBS) provides a generalist MBA with the opportunity to focus on specific areas within its range of electives. Within the MBA you will choose three 6 month elective programmes, one of which could be Marketing at a strategic level.

You could therefore do the complete MBA with Marketing as one of your special elective programmes, or you could choose to do the Marketing programme as a stand-alone 6 month course.

The cost for the complete MBA is approximately 12000 pounds sterling. The cost for the Marketing elective is approximately 2000 pounds sterling.

We do not offer financial aid, but the programmes are tax deductible, and they can be paid for monthly as you do the programme.

In addition to a first degree (university or equivalent qualification) you will need to have experience at managerial level (such as project management as one example) before entering the MBA programme. The minimum entry age is 27.
