    Heeeyy TSR ,

    First of all, im so grateful that this forum exists. Your advice on here is reaallyyy good. It has helped me a lot to gather information! Now its my turn to finally post a question.

    So, Im a business owner of multiple Online Services and one B2B Wholesale business of drone parts.

    I want to start an innovative engineering company, particularly in the drone industry and manufacture drones with certain functions, in the medical field, or custom made drones as per client requests etc.

    I am finishing my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering, and I have no formal education in business. Just stuff that i read on the internet and on books. Still, there is a looot that i need to learn.

    I want to do an MBA because i need this type of formal education to manage and run my businesses. I have big dreams and i want to own great businesses and corporations some day. Also, many (small) business owners on the internet have suggested that an MBA is actually quite beneficial for business owners, because of the practical application of the knowledge/theory.

    On the other hand, I would like to start an engineering company/startup, preferably innovative and in connection to the general science field (medical, biology, chemistry, etc.)

    So I am interested in 2 master programs. I am not saying that i have an offer or will get an offer,but I would to start a discussion and explore your brilliant minds to see what possibilities i have and is useful for what:

    1.) MBA (preferably from LBS) --> learning to manage my businesses
    2.)Master Innovation, Entrepreneurship & Management --> to start that innovative engineering business and learn about innovative technological entrepreneurship

    What would you guys suggest me to do? Thank you all !!

    MBA, especially at LBS, requires work experience. The alternative at LBS is MSc in Management.
    If you are intent on continuing to Masters without getting work experience, then either the MSc Management or MSc Innovation, E & M would be good, bearing in mind that even in the MSc Management one can also do more options on Entrepreneurship. Given your specific interests, I would go for the MSc Innovation since you will not be able to enrol in the LBS MBA.
