BH015 MBAs...More than Just a Masters
Is it truly worth getting your MBA in the healthcare industry? Does a master’s degree really give you a ‘leg up’ over your competition and help you land the prestigious positions you want for your career? How can a busy healthcare professional fit continuing education into their already busy lifestyle while raising a family and helping patients? As a healthcare professional with an MBA and a busy home-life and work-life, I’m frequently asked these important questions.
In today’s episode, I share my thoughts on whether earning your master’s degree in healthcare is truly necessary and how MBAs open more doors of opportunities beyond a framed piece of paper for your office wall. I discuss how earning your MBA can improve your time-management, presentation, and leadership skills. I also share the process I used to balance working full-time in the healthcare industry while raising a family and earning my MBA.
