Gezinus Hidding: This is an executive MBA program specifically focused on health care. John Ilic: It is convenient for people like myself who are working professionals. Sohail Jameel: I was looking for options outside of the clinical field. I have seven years of
work experience in different health care settings and I wanted to go into a management position. Rania Ahmed: I thought a business degree would be strictly business but this is not.
You relate to it very easily and it translates into your everyday work. Gezinus Hidding: Two areas this program is different then a regular MBA program is one, the cohort
aspect, it is really important that people network at get to know each other. Rania Ahmed: We’re twenty students and we’re together for weekends for two years. Gezinus Hidding: And certainly this is really focused on health care, so all of the topics you would have in a regular MBA program
are in this program as well but with a health care focus. Rania Ahmed: It’s a one-day a week program and it
is very conveniently split into four quarters a year. Gezinus Hidding: An important component is it has an international study trip. John Ilic: The whole point of the trip was to learn about the health
care system in other countries and other parts of the world. You get to visit various hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. We were able to interact with other health care professionals in those countries. It was like one whole package for us. Anyone who is interested in becoming a
leader definitely needs to have that level of education in an advanced program. But I would further say that if you practice in
areas or businesses in the health care environment, this is a program that distinguishes itself from other traditional MBA programs.
