Greenwich School of Management ; the A-Z of Business Schools 2007
HISTORY: Founded in 1973, it runs validated MBAs from the University of Hull and the University of Plymouth.
ADDRESS: An Art Deco building with a landmark 180ft clock tower, right in the middle of fashionable Greenwich.
AMBIENCE: By day, there's a mix of international and home students on the full time MBA, while the evening MBA attracts local and City of London-based managers. Weekend executive programme students are high-fliers fast-tracking to management posts.
VITAL STATISTICS: It's small, with 700 students. There are 300 MBA places, and the course is delivered in a range of modes: full- time (12 months), part-time evening or day release (24 months) and weekend executive (12 weekend modules over 24 months). There are specialisations available in strategic management, health services management, financial management, human resource management and marketing. There's also a pre-qualifying diploma in management studies (DMS) for candidates not accepted for direct entry on to the MBA.
ADDED VALUE: Being small enough for teachers to know all students personally, it's cosy. Greenwich boasts historic buildings, good bookshops, trendy bars and antique markets.
