The MBA and the MSc are both masters-level management degree programs, in the UK they are considered to be at level 7, after which one can pursue  a PhD or a Doctorate which is a level 8 program. Now, how do you choose between these two management degrees, well to begin with you need to understand the  difference between an MBA and an MSc and the underlying benefits to you and your future.

MBA: Master of Business Administration

The Masters in Business Administration is a professional, executive level business course tailored to develop one's leadership skills and also to create a platform on which professionals can showcase their business expertise.

MSc: Master of Science

A Master of Science is a business qualification designed for students who have just recently completed their undergraduate qualification and want to build on the skills they gained before entering the job market.

Choosing between an MBA and an MSc depends on your preferences, your future plans, amount of work experience earned and numerous other variables but most importantly it depends on the available job prospects in the market.MBA is dri

An MBA is usually the programme of choice for those individuals who have accumulated at least 8 to 10 years of full-time work experience with a few years at the managerial level. These individuals are looking to progress in their careers to more senior positions or to set up their own business. In contrast, the MSc is pursued by candidates who have not yet accumulated any work experience and are fresh out of university. They may or may not decide to work while they are studying but priority is theoretical know-how and information. 

Furthermore, someone who pursues an MBA is looking to advance to a position of a General Manager or a Department Head, where as an MSc graduate would look to become the head of the Marketing department or Finance department and would pursue the appropriate MSc course to reach that level.
