Online Panel Discussion on Healthcare-Focused MBA, July 17, 2010
As the world economy continues to regain its footing, the emergence of a healthcare industry that is more globalized than ever before is obvious. The globalization has been driven by many factors, chief among them the ease of communication and commerce across far-flung nations, a highly mobile and affluent workforce, the transition of BRIC nations to western-style lifestyle diseases, and the increase in access to advanced therapies on a broader geographical scale. This globalization of healthcare industry has thrown up a truly unique set of opportunities and challenges, a fact not missed by the industry and academia alike. Over the last decade, the leading business schools have developed a comprehensive set of courses and programs to train the next-generation leaders of the healthcare industry. But are we ready? Who must we include among these future leaders - public health policy experts, engineers, biologists, doctors? Who among the MBA aspirants should consider getting an MBA focused on healthcare?
Come, hear the current and/or past officers of the Healthcare Clubs at the leading business schools such as Harvard, Wharton, Stanford, Kellogg, Haas, and Fuqua discuss their respective MBA programs. These panelists will address via an online conference audience questions ranging from the specifics of courses offered and career opportunities for a "Healthcare MBA" to the ethical responsibilities of a newly minted MBA towards the clinical needs of the less-affluent parts of the world.
Panelists for the event include:
* Harvard Business School: Karen Sein, Co-President, Healthcare Club
* Stanford Graduate School of Business: Dr. Vandana Jain, Co-President, Healthcare Club
* The Wharton School, The University of Pennsylvania: Lauren DiCola, President, Healthcare Club
