Online MBA dilemma


Hi everyone, I am currently working in a Fortune 500 pharma company in Singapore in a regional innovation role. I have a PhD in natural science and never got any formal business training. I am looking to enrol in an international online MBA program to get necessary management and leadership training with the goal of fast tracking my career progression to a global management role in 2-3 year's time. I am also looking for international mobility as my company often moves high achievers to global HQ in Europe in next 4-5 year. I want to keep my full time job while pursuing an MBA as I am not exactly looking to change career or industry. I have applied to ESMT, IE, WHU and Maastricht EuroMBA prioritising on international curriculum and moderate fees as I am not getting any company sponsorship at the moment. Any recommendation on which business school and program to choose given I get accepted in all the programs I have applied to?

Thanks!

Hi Arun, sorry for the late reply. I have decided to join the Executive MBA program at IE Business school. Really liked their international cohort and blended learning which mimics my current job scope and profile. There is also a sizeable alumni in life science industry which will hopefully benefit me in near future.
