Transiting from public policy to private sector healthcare


cej

Does an MBA make sense for this transition?

I’m 34, with about 9 years of experience in the Singapore public sector. Starting from teaching, to managing teachers, then to policy roles in research and now healthcare. Policy analysis, managing grants, etc. Happy with where I am now as the work is interesting and dynamic, but I’m exploring possible transitions to the private sector in 3-4 years to broaden my experience. Provider / payer strategy, or healthcare consulting. Not looking to relocate.

Would an MBA make sense for this transition? I’m looking to gain a stronger business perspective and hone management skills. Probably an online MBA as I’m not at the stage of life to do it full time. Looking at IE, Imperial, Warwick. I’m aware that it’ll take more effort to network, which I’m working on (also to better understand the space and options).

Thanks!

An on campus part time degree makes more sense. Consider the Manchester Global MBA in Singapore, NUS or NYU.

Thanks Duncan. Is networking the main benefit?

Learning is better on campus for most people, but both networking and brand equity equate to where the graduates are.
