MiM or MAM – Which one is right for you?

By Maria Busz, MAM Recruitment Associate

Working in the Recruitment Team, we often get questions about the differences between the MAM and MiM programme. It’s more than understandable as these two programmes have a very similar curriculum. You’ll learn about business, you’ll do the London LAB project and you’ll collaborate on many practical assignments together as MiM and MAM students.

There are, however, some key differences between the two programmes and I will try to present them to you today.

Masters in Management, our flagship programme, has been developed in partnership with top global recruiters. It equips you with the critical business understanding, adaptive mindset, international perspective and business-ready practical skills to start your career.

As a MiM candidate, you should have the motivation and desire to build a strong foundation for a career in business. MiM students tend to come from diverse academic and professional backgrounds. We are more than happy to consider applicants who have broad work experience in non-traditional business roles such as engineering, science and arts.

As for Masters in Analytics and Management, you’ll have to be ready to combine detailed data analytics knowledge with strong business acumen. You will explore wide-ranging subjects like Data Visualisation, Machine Learning and AI. Use real data to solve real problems during your live business project, or join the London start-up scene.

MAM students are expected to have some prior programming knowledge (at least intermediate level) and to have already worked on a data driven project. We are happy to accept candidates from STEM backgrounds with a strong interest in business and management and strong leadership skills.

When deciding which programme to choose, you might need to consider the bigger picture. You’ll need to be self-aware and understand what are you strong and weak sides and what do you want your career path to look like.

Some useful questions to ask yourself before choosing a programme would be:

  1. What are my strengths and weaknesses?
  2. What do I want to do in the future?
  3. What skills do I need that I don’t have yet?

If you’re thinking about a career in consulting, either of these programmes might prove to be right for you. If you’re not sure whether to choose MiM or MAM, it all depends on whether you want to add an analytical edge to your skillset. If you can see yourself working in a consulting company and want to be involved in data-driven projects, MAM might be a better fit for you. Or perhaps you are thinking about starting your own business in tech and need more analytical knowledge to better understand the ins and outs of the industry.

If you prefer to gain more general knowledge or perhaps are transitioning from a non-business related background, MiM might be a better fit for you.

As a Recruitment Team, we’re always aiming to give you a clearer idea of what programme is the best option for you as an individual. We have a number of upcoming online events where you can find out more about the programme of your choice. We also offer one to one consultations on Zoom.

If you’d like to get in touch with a Recruitment representative, please email mim@london.edu for the Masters in Management programme, and mam@london.edu for the Masters in Analytics and Management programme.

We’re looking forward to speaking with you!
