MMU vs Aston vs Durham vs Birmingham without Bachelors degree


Hi, I am applying to the 4 universities listed above to begin studying an online MBA. I currently live in Norway working as a Marketing and sales manager at a tech company in Oslo. As mentioned in the title I don't have an undergraduate degree but i do have around 15 years of work experience, 10 of which in a management capacity.

I would like to increase my opportunity for progression within my current company and prospects for applying to others, eventually reaching a position of VP in marketing or CMO for a similar tech company or a University.

What I like about these 4 universities is that they are accredited, allow a work experience entry route and are no more than ~20,000 GBP (affordable). I have already received an offer from Manchester Met and waiting to hear back from the other three.

My question is, as their is no suitable option for studying in Norway (Meet my criteria) which of these 4 Universities do you think best suit my goals?

Also please let me know of other similar Universities to apply to that I may have missed.

If you're looking to stay in Norway, you can do some research on LinkedIn - look at managers / executives in the kinds of companies where you are interested in working in, and see which of these schools is better represented. This will give you a sense of each school's network, and which degrees are valued where.

@MikeChristopher - I've done my MBA in INSEAD (France and SG) without an undergrad, and have assisted others without an undergrad get into other schools. For an in person MBA in the UK I am aware that Cass, Oxford, Cambridge and LBS are admitting. For an online MBA, I would also consider Ducere. You are welcome to reach out if I can be of any help - linkedin.com/in/MBAmichael, or facebook.com/MBAMichaelGallant/

I can't see any reason to consider Ducere rather than schools with meaningful International accreditation.

That's putting it gently. That Ducere program would be a terrible choice - a literal waste of money, considering you can get a better education for free elsewhere.
