I am a long time lurker but first time poster at gmatclub and sure enough, I am looking for some advise/opinion.
Unlike most of the crowd, I am from a scientific field- more specifically, I am working in chemistry in a hightech materials company, which is small in a size and scope of growth is fairly small. After working for 5 years my salary is 74k plus 5-10% bonus and few thousand dollars in incentive cash for patents/inventions.
I did my BSc from a top university in India, did MSc from one of the IITs and fianlly did another MS at a small university in midwest US. I would conservatively rate my educational achievements as better than average. Off the 5 years at work, I spent 3 years in a biotech company, however in all those 5 years I was never been a part of the managerial level. Being a scientist I spent much of my work day in lab. From my work experience I saw how badly a company can be managed in biotech. And I also observed how other companies are persuaded to invest in a vague biotech assets. I feel that I have the strength and capabilities to make the right investment decision to a pharma/biotech company. I believe to put myself in a role of investment consultant I do need to go through an MBA program.
At this moment I am sure there will be a lot more opportunities in chemical industries but I am not too sure how my expertise will fit into their equation.
Please chime in if you think I am thinking it right, that is go out for GMAT and then go for a part time MBA (sort listed NYU/Temple/Leigh/Drexel because of proximity to my office) and finally move my career to a new direction. Your critics are welcome.

I'm not sure exactly what you want me to tell you, other than perhaps to give you reassurance.

If you want to move to the business side within biotech/pharma, then by all means apply for b-school. Go for it.
