Uncertainty about choosing programs


Hello. I am a 21 y.o from Myanmar (Burma).



My degrees are BEng (Hons) Mechatronics from University of Wolverhampton, UK with first class honours and BBA from a university from India which completed simultaneously because BBA was taught by online distance learning method.



My experiences - Approx. 1 year as operations role at A.P. Moller - Maersk and 3 years at medical devices, medical goods, etc. related trading company.



My goal -

1. To work as a managerial role at healthcare/pharmaceuticals/biotech such as Roche/GSK/ Bayer, etc.

2. To do a start-up as a side hustle focusing on digital healthcare such as telehealth/virtual clinic/teleconsultation.



I will be applying for September 2023 intake. My options are;

1. UCL MBA Health (will only consider if I get scholarship up to GBP 15,000 as total tuition is 45,000 which is very expensive for me)

2. Cranfield MSc in Management

3. Cranfield MSc in Management with Entrepreneurship

4. Durham MSc in Management

5. Edinburgh MSc in Management

6. Glasgow MSc in Management



- Which options would be the best for me and may I know the explanation please?

- Is Entrepreneurship specialization really appropriate or not? What benefits would the employers see from it?

- Is MSc Management good enough since it doesn't have specialization unlike most MSc degrees?



Thank you very much :)

Don't you have too much work experience for these MSc options? At first glance, they are better than a new MBA  lacking strong relationships with employers. Which of these programmes places most people into the firms you mention?

Hello Mr. Duncan. My 3 yrs exp. in trading has started since my undergraduate student life (18 y.o) to present time as it is my family business. Post-qualification experience is just about 1 yr at Maersk. So I guess that my much work experiences cannot be counted as post-qualification work exp. as most MBA require at least 3 yrs work exp. starting only after bachelor degree completion.

According to my research on LinkedIn, UCL places most people into those types of firms but turns out they are medical professionals and nurses. For Cranfield, it shows British Army, Rolls-Royce, and etc. - turns out they are engineering grads instead of MSc in Management.

I am unable to search people with MSc in Management from which universities are placed in those industries specifically.

Your kind advice is highly appreciated sir. Thank you very much.
