Hi abhishek

I did a one year full time MBA  in 1989/90 at Edinburgh University, and 
frequently attend talks for Alumnus, to keep  informed of the latest 

When the course is advertised as full-time, it should be 24x7, as the volume 
of reading just to keep up with the course and projects leaves little time for 
any other activity.
For example, I had no Christmas break as I had to spend the time in the 
Library of Scotland researching newspaper and related media data to  produce a 
strategy for reversing the declining circulation of the Daily Telegraph. There 
was a huge volume of lecturing which you really must understand,  on topics 
like employment tribunal decisions where the outcome seems to defy normal 
logic. Accountancy and Finance and Economics is OK for anyone with a 
mathematical or science background. Psychology  is fun.
The places you have offers from, may differ from Edinburgh University which is 
"Ranked 82nd globally by Financial Times (a rise of 11 places on 2005), 20th 
in Europe and 12th in UK. This compares with the 2005 economist rankings that 
place us 7th in UK, 14th in Europe and 35th in the world". Not INSEAD or 
Harvard, but probably more affordable.

You should be aware that many Universities(Cambridge) dislike you doing 
part-time work.
On the other hand you may be extremely able, and have limit-less energy to
