Seems like it could overlap, and long as you were doing designing and not just implementing. There was a lengthy discussion on MHA/MPH versus MBA in a separate thread. I would rather have the MBA, especially since you already have the healthcare background

could i be an attractive candidate, or does my lack of MBA disqualify me from strategy?

Errr, corporate strategy or strategy consulting?

i imagine the only thing i would be somewhat qualified for would be provider side strategy

Were you doing implementation-type consulting? Seems like a hard shift. I would find a dream provider strategy role and see how your background/skills align.

yeah i was/am. i looked up bcg provider strategy roles - they talk about value based care and ACOs and using data from technology that fits into the clinical workflow and designing interoperable systems, so maybe my experience would be somewhat relevant? also, would having an MHA make me a more attractive candidate, or is it MBA or nothing?

think it will matter if my MBA is part time? would be nice to take a remote position so i’m not spending $60k/yr and also zero income

I haven’t heard of many people doing PT MBAs and moving to Strategy consulting.. maybe I am wrong, but seems less likely
