After very succesful job interview it came to me that maybe an MBA in innovation could be the right move for me. I've launched a couple of .com's (one being very big) in new markets, By coincidence I was also present at a time of growth at both companies. I've been a mix of things in the past, from product manager to BPO-operations manager to again some sort of product manager. Would a degree potentialise my experience and enable me to go for higher corporate roles? I've always worked in the online services sector.
MBA in Innovation and Business Development
I'm already a sr. Product manager for a small software company. I ended taking this path by sheer chance as my original background is communication/journalism. Ideally I'd like to cement my career as product manager all the way to VP/CPO level. I already have an MSc from City University London.
OUBS, LBS, Cambridge and Manchester are the schools with the most product innovation MBAs in the UK tech industry. In terms of top leadership roles, it's really LBS > Oxbridge > Manchester. For senior, but lower, roles Insead, Imperial, Warwick, and Henley are strong. Edinburgh and City for fintech, too. So it comes down to the mode of MBA and how high you want to go.
