I have to decide before end of March if I want to register for a master’s program in “Syrian Virtual University” (It was established on the 2nd of September 2002 and is the first virtual education institution in the region), and I have two choices which are MBA (Master of Business Administration) and MQM (Master of Quality Management), but I prefer MBA.

I have no idea about economics, accounting, statistics and other subjects, so do you think a pharmacist could success in this program?, is it easy to study subjects related to business? I know I’ll learn how to manage my pharmacy, to know about market, and other things related to business, but I need to hear your opinions, maybe you could help me to take the right decision!

Let’s make pineapple nut loaf:
