If you're thinking about investing time and money into an Executive MBA program, then you should read this paper before you make that decision.
Here are some snippets from the Executive MBA Council:
A board-certified trauma and critical care surgeon, Terry Loftus entered the Executive MBA Program in 2007. “As an Executive MBA student, I began looking at health care though a different lens.”The Executive MBA Council advances executive education worldwide in a number of ways – through its partnerships, conference, and research and outreach activities.
That lens provided a transformational perspective that helped Loftus make a career transition from the clinical side to the business side of health care. Now chief medical officer at Banner Boswell Medical Center in Sun City, Arizona, Loftus oversees patient safety and quality assurance initiatives, working with the medical staff to improve outcomes.
Executive MBA alumni talk about their time in the program as exhilarating, heady, and intense – one that changes the way they think about leadership, global business, problem solving, and team building.
