    Such a general question gets a general answer. They're just fine.

    What he's suggesting is that your question is too broad. Which British degrees? Oxbridge degrees? Very well accepted. LSE, LBS, absolutely. The mill named "University of Newcastle"? Not accepted at all, provided the human resources department is paying attention. But generally, British degrees are well accepted and considered the equivalents of their U.S. counterparts. One of my former colleagues, a director of a center (who has since moved on to another university), has a PhD from a well-known AACSB British business school, and I never heard anyone here who considered him cut from inferior cloth. I've suggested to my adult daughter, who recently had her first child and wants to go online for her masters, that she pursue a degree through the UoL due to cost effectiveness and general reputation, so am putting money where the mouth is. But again, it's all about which university, which program. Please elaborate and we can answer with greater specificity.

    An average university such as Robert Gordon or Middlesex. Oxford and Cambridge is like Harvard and University everyone knows them but unknown University. B universities may have good reputation in the UK and only professional body qualifications

    Which industry and locale?

    Ample cross-flagging in the New York-London financial industry, I think. Others industries in other places, perhaps not.

    Average university such Robert Gordon or Middlesex .Oxford and Cambridge is like Harvard and Yale , well known worldwide. Average university may have good reputation in UK and only have professional body accreditations.

    I'm considering UK for same reasons "price". A friend who works at Oxford told me I should aim for master degree since I have 20 years in logistics 15 as business owner. Opinions?

    I'm familiar these site but what exactly does it mean. Newcastle is ranked 23 but I saw someone say it was diploma mill.

    I'm interested in Robert Gordon and Middlesex for logistics. I'm only concerned with quality education . And that my degree isn't questioned in US
