Looking for guidance regarding choosing/pursuing an MBA


Hello There.





I am an Indian dentist looking to foray into management roles and grow within healthcare organizations. Currently, I work in Qatar but I intend to leave the country within the following year.


A little about me:


- completed a masters in dentistry in 2016 (from India)


- work experience of almost 5 years (India and Qatar)


- have not undertaken the GMAT or GRE.





What I'm looking for:


- A management program that is known for its healthcare electives/specialization and faculty.


- Employability in the local market (where the Institution is based) and global markets.





My doubts are (not limited to) the following:


- Is it important to pursue an MBA degree from a triple crown accredited institution to achieve the aforementioned?


- How does employability work? Is it based on the University/Faculty reputation or the alumni network or something else altogether?


- I've come to understand that MBA was designed to be a "generalist" degree. Would pursuing an MBA with a specialization other than healthcare hinder my chances of moving into the healthcare sector?


- Would a Masters of Management or Masters of Business Management hold the same opportunities and growth scopes as an MBA would?





I apologize if my questions seem vague but I'm trying to understand more about the pathway I need to take affirmatively.





Kind regards

Thank you Duncan. I will go through these threads.

I had received an admit from MSM for their MBA program but I am still feeling uncertain about whether it would help me achieve all that I am looking for from my original post.

MSM is not a good choice for employability. Study at a school with better connections in the country where you want to work.
