Kelley's Business of Medicine MBA


Duncan

Interesting part-time MBA from the Kelley school, 50% online and 50% in residence in Indianapolis, involving one weekend a month. Total tuition is under $60,000. http://kelley.iupui.edu/medicine/mba/

Interesting program and a good deal. Seems like it's designed for physicians - I wonder how it stacks up to the established EMBA options at Auburn, Tennessee-Knoxville, or the Physician EMBA at UT Dallas.

Boston University used to offer a two module long "Pocket MBA for Physicians," which was perfect for all those med-types in the Boston area, but I think they stopped a few years ago

Trying to decide between the Kelley physicians mba and that of Auburn. Both have their pluses and minuses. The Kelley program is from a top ranked school with a newly designed curriculum with a good dose of operations and quality improvement, but requires 24 monthly trips that for me require connecting flights. Auburn is a 12 year old program with fewer credits and less operations, but still a strong program. Auburn has well regarded school of business but not in top 20. Requires only 7 longer residencies with direct flights which is certainly more attractive to this physician hoping to improve skills in hospital and department leadership. Alumni from Auburn had many good things to say, no alumni from IU yet. Any thoughts on these programs in specific and their B- schools in general would be appreciated,.

What are your goals? The Kelley program will probably provide better value over the long term, considering the school's much stronger alumni network and career services support.

If you're not looking for either of those things -- if you just want to add some business skills to your medicine kit, so to speak -- I'm sure the Auburn program would be fine.
