MBA after PhD [#permalink] New post 21 Nov 2013, 21:42
Hello everyone!

I'm new to this forum and impressed by the members commitment and responses. Kudos!!!

To start with I have been seriously considering doing MBA and looking for advice.

My Profile:

Education/work Experience: Ph.D. (pharmaceutical sciences with total of around 9 years of work experience (5 years post-baccalaureate and 4 years post-doctoral)
Chronological: B.Pharm (4 years)--> Pharmaceutical Industrial Experience (5 years)--> MS/Ph.D (Pharmaceutical sciences-5 years)--> Pharmaceutical formulation R&D ( 4 years and currently continuting with the same )
Personal: Male/37 years old/Indian
Now, I'm inclined to do MBA to learn the business concepts and want to be an entrepreneur or work in senior level management after MBA.

My queries are as follows:
1. Is it wise to do MBA with my profile? Is it worth the time and money?
2. If MBA could add value to my profile, what kind of MBA programes should I choose, one-year accelerated vs two year? and also is it advisable to choose Pharmaceutical management/health care concentration?
3. Which universities would best suit my profile?


Please answer/advise me of the above-mentioned queries

Thanks and Regards,
Little

You may certainly consider Executive MBA Program; It is never late. You have an excellent background and depending on where you want to go in the future career, you can consider several different schools with various Executive MBA Programs specifically designed for Pharmaceutical & Healthcare professionals.

For instance take a look at the Executive MBA Candidate profile at Saint Joseph's University (http://www.sju.edu/majors-programs/grad ... executives)

Average industry experience: 10 years
Average age range: 30-38
Average GPA: 3.1
Male/Female ratio: 48% male, 52% female
Educational background: 72.5% Bachelor's Degree, 21% Master's Degree, 1% Juris Doctor, 1% Ph.D., 4.5% Pharm.D.
Functional expertise: middle to senior level management positions in sales, marketing, market research, marketing operations, finance, clinical research, and product management.

or Warton: http://www.wharton.upenn.edu/mba/academics/mbamd.cfm

I am sure you can find more schools depending on your interest and future plans.

Thank you rustamz for your reply.
As a matter of fact, I am living in South Korea, and looking for full time one-year MBA with or without pharma/healthcare concentration in USA or Canada. Executive programs mostly are offered as part time week end classes. Besides, they are very expensive, almost double the cost of standard MBA.

Thanks.
With Warmest Regards,
