Well I would suggest you talk to someone at your school who can advise you of these issues you have. I am unsure if that means you'd like to leave your country to use your degree or if you are planning on using it there.

I'd imagine you'd have the same opportunities everywhere. I don't know about the pharma management but the hospital management would be exactly what it states. You will be trained to manage hospitals financially ... Many hospitals need bright people to help find ways to keep technology up while keep costs down, especially with the rise cost of healthcare (at least here in the US).

Any job in a hospital will have time and pressure, any job PERIOD will require time and pressure. How much you are willing to put in would be requirements of the position not of a generalization.

I am a female as well as I realize family might come first so these are all things to consider when accepting a position not necessarily when you are looking down a career path. I have my MBA in healthcare management to utilize my business skills later down the road in either a hospital or private practice setting.

You would be best advised by advisors at your home institution to counsel you of why they have to the two tracks and which one might be right for you.

Best of luck. :luck:
