MBA-e Program Welcomes New Students
A select group of healthcare professionals arrived on the Yale SOM campus in July to begin studying the complex changes reshaping their industry today. Thirty new students began classes in the MBA for Executives: Leadership in Healthcare (MBA-e) program, a two-year course of study that's designed for working, mid-career leaders in the healthcare sector. This year's class, the largest in the program's history, brings expertise from fields as diverse as patient care, IT, global pharmaceutical consulting, and financial planning.
The MBA-e program combines education in analytical and leadership skills with a deep exploration of the human, economic, political, and technological issues impacting healthcare management. The members of the MBA-e class of 2014 are highly accomplished. They include physicians and healthcare administrators with a wide range of specialties, the vice president of a biotechnology startup that aids diagnostic solutions in oncology treatment, a senior scientist in pharmaceutical research, a senior program officer at New York City's largest anti-poverty nonprofit, and the chairman and CEO of a hospital management solution provider that operates the largest network of radiotherapy and diagnostic imaging centers in China.
MBA-e students begin the program with two weeks of intensive study and then settle into a schedule of two weekends of classes per month. The program began with orientation on July 28 and 29.
