Mba Healthcare/Sports (Canada/US)


Hiren Daiy...
I am planning to do mba next year.
I am an Indian and hold a Canadian PR.
Completed my 4.5 yrs Bachelors in Physiotherapy.
Have 3.5 yrs work experience as a Physiotherapist.
I have 19 months work experience working for a bpo after my hsc.
I wish to pursue mba in healthcare.
Though i am slightly inclined towards sports management.
Preferred country of study would be Canada.
2nd choice would be USA.
Can anyone please share some thoughts regarding this based on my profile.
Also a list of good mba programs with specialization in
1) healthcare
2) Sports management.
Thanks

I wonder if a specialised masters other than an MBA would be right for you? What are your goals?

What I mean is this: you want to take a graduate degree in the space around management, healthcare and sports. Most of the graduate degrees on those topics will not be MBAs. There will also be master of science and master of arts degrees.
For example:-

http://www.uwo.ca/fhs/sportmgt/programs/graduate.html

It's hard to give such specific guidance without really knowing more about you and getting a feel for your aptitudes and attitudes. I have a summer sale on (see my profile page) if you need personal guidance

More generally, for someone with limited work experience, it seems more reasonable to think that one would transition into a healthcare management role by getting out of the delivery side and working in a supplier or consultancy. So a excellent MBA seems like the best route.

I think that, on the basis of knowing very little about you, that you could use a top MBA to get a job in a firm that supplies the healthcare industry and, from there, you could get a better management role in the healthcare industry more quickly.
