Hi all! I am currently in an internal healthcare consulting role and looking for advice on getting an MBA. I went straight from undergrad to grad school where I got my MPH. I’m young, but have a lot of experience in healthcare. I have less in business- why the MBA intrigues me. Do I need? When should I go if so? What should I be doing now to prepare? General tips :)

Before deciding on an MBA I would network with some consulting people in healthcare practices/firms. Get their opinion and maybe even apply for some of the jobs. If that doesn’t work out but you’re still interested in consulting consider an MBA. Keep in mind many MBA programs outside of the top 15 or so will have limited impact on your chances in consulting, especially the better firms.

At this point the most you can do is kill the GMAT and try and get 75th percentile for the schools you want to get into

Hi! I have a healthcare background too, got an MBA/MPH from a non top-15 school and went into healthcare strategy consulting for payers. Honestly with your background in the field and the job market right now, you might want to try working in strategy consulting in healthcare. That’ll give you similar exposure to business principles as an MBA and give subsequent employers confidence that you can be a health industry leader. DM me if you want a referral!

It depends on what you want to do! Do you want to stay in healthcare? Do you want to go into healthcare administration? Do you want to go into healthcare consulting? Want to pivot entirely?

Well, I do not have an MBA but I'd get one if I was trying to move into a new industry. I'd look around and see - what do the leaders in your own or similar orgs have? That's a great way to start figuring out if it would be helpful to move up.

You don't need an MBA to be a great leader tho :)

I know the basics of testing and conducting workshops, but I don't know how to develop those skills further. My company focuses on UI and I haven't been lucky to land a PD job. Do companies really look for all those skills?

The client and coworkers were all nice, but I remember being stressed on the project due to limited resources.
