Sometimes people wonder why professionals in the medical field, in healthcare management, should have an MBA (Master of Business Administration). You may think that an MBA is only for business, and hospitals are not really a business. Well, that’s wrong because, in fact, it is about management in organisations. We all have the same problem – whether it is a business, a hospital or any large organisation. It’s about people, it’s about managing budgets, it’s about adopting new technologies and implementing new systems. The complexities in the healthcare sector are even greater than they are in some other business. So, the type of skills that you learn in an MBA are certainly very appropriate for current and future managers in this sector.
