I am a computational biologist/chemist (phd) in USA and been working as scientist for ~10 years now. I am interested in pursuing a career in management. I have worked on multiple, diverse, disease-related projects as well as with diverse experimental collaborators. But it is not clear regarding how to enter science-related management position.
My main questions are:
1) Is MBA degree essential to get a management-related job?
2) Will online MBA be useful?
3) Is there anyone in this forum with similar background (phd with MBA) and can you share your experience/advice?
4) Finally, any comment about online MBA degree from Indian universities? They seem to be less expensive.
Your comments/suggestions will be helpful.
