It's just a post. Read it.
19 yrs exp wanting to pivot into vc
I red your post and followed your instructions... and thank you for that .
The question "Does it tell me if it's the best path to me?" was a question I have asked myself and submitted to this platform, even if, it's not not the right place. I was looking for having an advice and a point of view as things were not clear enough for me in terms of the benefits of this kind of programs (Mid Career MPA.)
I have tried to contact some of the Alumni to have more colour on the program.

The best path is a really existential question. Only you can attempt to really answer it and, even then, the destination you have chosen might not be really ideal. What that method does is give you a working hypotheses about the path most taken, about the most viable way.
Other things being equal, an MPA is clearly not a better route than an MBA. You are attempting, I suspect some form of arbitrage.
Thank you for your answer. I did not see things in terms of arbitrage... as my main objective is and still an MBA and my targets are warwick and Nanyang fellows as they offer the possibility of 1y MBA. I have recently discovered this degree and I wanted to have more infos, and your answers helped me to clarify some points
It's hard to really paint a picture of your goals and the path you want to follow. Personally, I find it hard to understand why you think these options are more likely to work than others.
For example, given your age the more typical path would be to combine a part-time MBA or MiF with personal branding, networking and a series of job moves into the new field.
I looked in LinkedIn for MBAs working on sovereign finance, and the schools with the most alumni are: Harvard Business School; The Wharton School; INSEAD; Columbia Business School and London Business School. Surely these are the best options for networking into the field.
Because of my age, I have started considering programs that offer 1y full time ( this for personal reason). As all these above mentionned programs can not accept me, I have started to consider programs that can fit my constraints .
have also considered the sloan fellow from LBS. And Still looking for Job opportunities in the field or even connexe jobs... that s why I have asked for MPA...
I think they will accept me...but, my constraint is 1y full time ( as I stated, for personal reason).
That s why I have reduced my scope.
Maybe send me a personal message about this personal reason. The LBS Executive MBA, for example, is 16 to 24 months depending on elective choices. You could take your six electives as block weeks, many over the summer, and be almost completely done within 12 or 13 months. A top EMBA is a well-worn path into your target field.
