Healthcare management MBA


Hi,
I am a Biomed with 4 years of experience in a medical device company as Product manager. I would like to have an MBA that will allow me to grow professionally as soon as I have also enough experience to do that, covering positions as marketing manager, business unit director or country manager. (tution fees should be < 35K).
I work in Italy and I am not looking for a relocation at least for now.

Unfortunately I can't leave my job so my only option is for online MBA.
Do you have any advise about which MBA could fit with my career goals? a general MBA or healthcare industry MBA?
thank you for your help

P.S. looking on linkedin many my collegues have an MBA from MIP or MIT but I am not sure that these are online MBA.

A general management MBA will certainly be better. After years in the industry, you won't learn much about healthcare from an MBA, but you will learn about management.

Thank you for your answer Duncan.
Considering that I am not going to move abroad and my budget, do you have any suggestion about general online MBA? Budget is approx <35K. Is MIP a good online MBA in your opinion? is it better to have it in Italy or an international one with more accreditation could have more value considering that these healthcare industry companies are mainly foreign ones?
thanks,
Francesco

MIP is an excellent school. Bocconi also has a part time degree focussed on healthcare.
