You seemed to love our last blog on ‘The top 5 cheapest universities in the UK” - you can find that blog here.
So we’re back again, but this time we’ll be letting you know the Top 5 Cheapest MBAs in the UK.
Now, one thing we need to point out before we carry on.
The 5 MBAs we talk about may not be the cheapest by tuition fee alone.
We've factored in the cost of living in that particular city and even the value for money from that particular MBA.
We’ve also tried to include the most cost-effective MBAs in London.
We felt this was important because a lot of students out there want to be in London, no matter what!
We recognise that.
So, although that MBA might not be the cheapest in the UK - London is an expensive place to live - it will be a very cost-effective London based MBA!
