Haseeb here, from Pakistan. I'm a computer sciences graduate, and have been working as a "Lead Marketplace Manager" for the past 3 years with Epic Games. Most recently, I've also been working as an "Associate Product Manager" in parallel to this role for the past 1+ year at the same organization. Total experience since graduation rounds off to roughly 4 years, and since I'm aiming to start in 2023, it will be close to 5 years by then.
I'm eyeing an MS/MBA program to accelerate my growth into a Senior/Lead/Group Product Manager role within the IT/Tech industry. My goals are to work in the UK after graduation for a couple of years, and eventually pivot into the US/Canadian market.
I don't have a great undergrad academic record since my family was going through some tough things while I was enrolled, so my percentage is 68.7
My budget is roughly £20,000, which I can stretch a bit (+-3k approx).
What would be a good business school for my goals, and what would be the right program? FT and QS rankings are mostly catering to Finance or general MIM programs. Would an MIM also be a good program to consider keeping in mind what my goals are?
I reckon my top most priorities are job placement and international mobility.
I've seen some interesting programs at Henley (Ms IT & Digital Business), Salford (similar program), University of Westminister (similar program) etc. Do these make sense or should I aim at more general courses like Msc Management from a different school? Or, is the MBA route the best option considering I have some experience in management roles already.
Any and all advice regarding this is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
