I am employed full time and live in NJ. so i'm kind of constrained with regards to the choices. please let me know if there are any other schools i should look at. I was thinking about the online program at Manchester Business school.
medium term, i would like to go up the corporate ladder in major global MNCs. Long term, i would probably look at entrepreunership. I'm not interested in finance industry jobs which i might be too old for anyway. but i'm thinking of specializing in finance or Global management to strive towards top level executive postions in global firms (Pharma comes to mind immediately, but frankly any domain).
Your insight will be much appreciated. thanks.
