So recently I discovered a program at my local university, a masters program geared towards medical product development management. It's especially enticing since it's geared towards science majors such as myself who are looking for a bridge towards the business management world. I am thinking about this since it will get more doors open and if things works out I may not even need MBA if I can land a job I am happy with. Of course, MBA is always there if I want to get higher or change of industry.


There are a lot of programs, especially master programs, that help students achieve what they want. One of these degrees is the MBA. By no means is the MBA the most essential degree though, as I'm sure you know it. Whatever route you choose to take to end up where you want to end up in is the right place to be at. It sounds like this masters program at your local university would help you reach where you want to be, and that if later on you decide an MBA is a better choice, you can always go for that. Good luck, buddy!
