- I didn't take any business courses in college. In hindsight, I regret that and I wish that I had enrolled in some business classes when I was at MIT.
- To learn how to avoid making mistakes in the business world. Many people learn through trial-and-error. In business school, you'll learn from your classmates and from their stories of past mistakes.
- Physicians value formal education and degrees. There's a level of formal credibility that comes with a degree or a certification.
- To network with other pharmaceutical and health care executives. It's been a great experience so far.
- I'm a continual learner. Call me a nerd, but I'm a lifelong student. I enjoy learning new things and going to class. I enjoy homework. I don't enjoy exams, but I'm sure I'll manage since business school is more about writing papers and working through group projects.
I am currently a business school student in the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Executive MBA program at Saint Joseph's University Erivan K. Haub School of Business in Philadelphia, PA. The Nationally-ranked and AACSB-accredited Haub School of Business, centrally located in the mid-Atlantic pharmaceutical and healthcare corridor, is able to bring together industry experts and a world-class faculty for a unique industry-focused, immersive executive program.
