I would appreciate some advice please.
I am a 42 year old Nigerian-British Doctor . I qualified in 2004 and practiced as an emergency doctor for 8 years before becoming a GP ( family physician ) 5 years ago
I am also a property investor which I have done informally since 2011 but set up my Property Investment company last year . I have a small team of builders and admin staff and the long term goal is to build the company up to provide social housing in the UK and possibly set up something similar in Nigeria . I have also run a few businesses in beauty and fashion with my wife which unfortunately we had to wind down
I envisage that I will leave the NHS in the next 5 year ( or sooner) to work full time for myself. I would also like to set up a not for profit organisation or join one after leaving the NHS.
I am considering an Executive MBA next year. My goals are :
1. Networking with a diverse group of peers and learning from them as much as possible .
2. Learning more about business, the language ,culture , strategy and analysis of business.
3. Equip myself for my planned change of industry .
In an ideal world my preferred options would be LBS or Cambridge . However considering the fact that I would most likely be self funding I was considering Manchester or Warwick as cheaper but decent alternatives.
So my question is :
1. Do you think that the extra £40000+ for LBS and Cambridge is a justifiable expense as I would not be looking for job or looking to advance further in my current job.
2. I was considering taking the Executive assessment instead of the GMAT . Would that place me at a disadvantage ?
3. What are my chances of getting into the schools above with my background ? What do I need to do to improve my chances of being accepted?
Thanks in Advance
