I think this depends on so many things, including your own background and location. I would look at high quality courses with a serious brand like   https://www.extension.harvard.edu/academics/graduate-degrees/information-management-systems-degree/mitx-micromasters-program-pathway Harvard.

Your goals are just not very clear. 

The Harvard course requires one weekend in Boston. It says so on the page. No point emailing them to check: the answer is there. Just read more slowly. 

People who say they want 'global' recognition need to look at top global schools: Columbia, Harvard, Insead, LBS, MIT, Wharton.... there are very few schools know all over the world. 

PS I think the Illinois MS might be more like the thing you are looking for: https://www.edx.org/masters/online-master-in-it-management-indiana-university 9/30 credits are waived if you do the Micromasters first, so that's a big saving.

Do you mean the Big 4 (Deloitte etc) or some sort of tech company? I would certainly look at the schools that place into those firms in your target countries. I am sure you are not really 'global', like equally interested in Russia, Brazil, China etc.

Have a look also at the Boston University Micromasters in Digital Leadership on EdX. I started doing the course last summer but note that two or three of the five modules don't have any confirmed further start dates at the moment. 

In my opinion, the only roles in technology where an MBA could make a big difference are the more business facing ones like CIO and Product Director/Manager and broader technology enabled business transformation roles. I think you may be better off looking for courses that focus on the business and strategic opportunities that emerging  technologies can enable; courses can tend to focus on the technology itself too much.

As an indication of the type of content you should be looking for in a technology management course, check out some of the modules on Boston Questrom's School of Business's joint MBA and MS in Digital Technology

Amazon (at least in the USA) used to recruit from the very top B schools but apparently has widened its net to include several dozen schools now. I would imagine the other companies you mention still focus on the top schools so bear that in mind if you want to target them or similar tech companies.

I'm not sure, it was just something that was quite widely reported in early 2020 as affecting Amazon's MBA recruitment in the USA. The UK might be different, Amazon has traditionally recruited from the top European schools. 

Have a look at this - it might give you an insight into the types of role Amazon recruits MBAs for: https://www.themuse.com/jobs/amazon/amazon-mbamasters-level-fulltime-opportunities-2021-united-states

Yes that's true - I was only suggesting it to give you some hints for the type of curriculum content to look for.
