Hello Nitya, how are you doing?

So first of all, I can totally relate to your question. I myself have been searching for a good MIM degree and all I see is top colleges in the UK for MIM, top colleges in Europe for MIM. Anyways, I think I can help give you some specifics as I have a friend attending the same university. But first, I want to clarify that the name has been changed to Bayes Business School.


There are actually two sides to this story, one is academic and the other is the lifestyle. For academics, I’m sure the school is as good as it is because it started as one of the best b schools in the UK. And as far as I know, the network that the business school provides is really impressive. I have myself read terrible reviews but suggesting this point in favour. And the student support services are also good, just not as good for employees there.


The area where the school lacks is their total awareness and job fairs. Like the guy I know has pointed out that even the professors at the school sometimes lack beyond the trend and some methodologies are out of date. For jobs, the school really brings top companies like Deloitte and Goldman Sachs. But the process lacks a bit. You may find a little sloppiness while delivering all your potential. But even so, it does not make a big difference.

For the lifestyle value, there are only a few minor problems about accommodation and nothing else. But I guess it happens at every college right? I remember living in hostels for my bachelor's degree. The university definitely has an influence but students have more. Anyway, other than that I can guarantee you that the lifestyle at Bayes or say Cass is truly as good as reviews. I would personally go there if I could. And the surroundings are at par with the UK level.

I can see how searching for top business schools such as Bayes shows only positive results. But the only reason for this is that the positive ones rule out the negative by huge numbers. And I can say that Bayes is definitely a better place to pursue your studies.

Let me know if this helped and if you want me to give you any more detailed information.

As a current student at Bayes Business School, I can share some direct experience. Firstly, the academic quality here is fantastic. The professors are experts in their fields, and the courses are relevant to the current business landscape. While, being in London, the networking opportunities and exposure to the business world are unbeatable. However, it's not without its challenges. The workload is significant, and balancing academic commitments with other aspects of student life can be tough. Also, living in London can be expensive. But if you're looking for a dynamic, challenging environment that prepares you for the real world, this is a great place. Just be prepared for the commitment it requires!

I am currently completing a Masters degree in Marketing and so far I am loving it.All the lecturers explain the material well and I can understand everything and complete all tests and coursework. You need to dedicate quite a lot of hours to do the readings, but at the end you receive all the knowledge needed.
From what I have gathered Cass Business School or Bayes Business School as it has a strong reputation especially in finance and entrepreneurship. The location in London is a big point for networking and internships. But the workload can be a little intense and the cost of living in London is high.  Before getting admission I had been trying to connect with current students on platforms like LinkedIn and student forums to get a real sense of the school. 

I would recommend this university.
