Tech. MBA _ Advice for Program Selection


Dears

Hope you all are doing well



I have 12+ years of experience in the Information and Communication Technologies and working as a Technology consultant in a company providing Management and technology consultancy



I am looking to develop my profile and study MBA and a little bit confused in the program selection and I'd appreciate your advice



My Goal is : strengthen my profile as I'd Like to continue in the consultancy field and Learn more about Product development , Product Management, Strategy , Roadmaping and around that are as If I changed the consultancy I'd Like to be on the product development on Innovation Management track



Region of interest : Europe (Where I live now) and (Middle east)



Programs : Online part-time ( I will not be able to Jiona full time on site program)



the options I am thinking about are



Option #1 :

General MBA from a top Ranked university within the budget of 30-35 K Euros



and here the program that I like are

- Alliance Manchester (Good reputation and well known in the middle east)

- Warwick ( is more expensive than the budget but I see it is the Top Ranked MBA program)



Option # 2 :

General MBA program from more cheaper schools and the programs here are

- Bradford

- Durham



Option #3 :

a technical MBA specialized in IT and Technology Management and the considered schools here are

- The open University

- Hult international flex online and focus more on the specialized selective modules



Option #4 :



here I am thinking If I went with option 2 or 3 the cost will be around 20-25 K euros so I can add more specialized post graduate certificates or programs from top universities like

Harvard , Stanford, Cambridge or MIT



I have found some courses or short programs ( which costs around 10-13 K euros )

which I can get beside one of the universities mentioned in option 2 and 3

Ex : this program from MIT

A late reply. Given that your focus in on learning, rather than gaining a big brand for your CV, I don't think you need an MBA. I'd think you'll get better price performance than MIT from a online MSc like https://studyonline.port.ac.uk/msc-innovation-management-and-entrepreneurship

If you follow Duncan's suggestion of learning and non-MBA courses rather than big name MBAs, look at Boston University's online EdX Micromasters in Digital Transformation Leadership. It takes a year and is particularly strong in some of the kind of areas you are interested in e.g. product management, platforms and roadmapping. 

The course costs about $2,000 which leaves you plenty of money to look at other core-MBA type courses as well.

Just a thought about the Middle East: often when people write about the Middle East they really mean the UAE and Qatar. It's perhaps worth focussing on programmes with operations there, like Bradford, City, HEC, Insead, LBS, Manchester and Strathclyde
