Already in the process of starting a health care consultancy which is a family business and I would be managing that. Want to get an MBA so as to manage this venture as rest all my family comprises of doctors so I have to take care of the management aspect of the company.

Operational activity -- dealing with hospitals, insurance companies, medicare product manufacturers

Is it recommended I try for a MS Marketing Program as I would be heading the Marketing aspect of my company and also taking care of the finances as well.

Okay, so you already have a position waiting for you and therefore while a school's ability to prepare you for management is certainly important, you dont' require a strong brand.

Given that, I would recommend that you look into a lower-tier school that focuses on general management -- perhaps with a health care specialization.

Yes that is correct. But I am looking for a school tat does pay emphasis to healthcare, but gives me more on the marketing and finance side as those are the 2 key areas where I will be responsible for my company. Operational part of course is being handled by rest of my family members who belong to the medical fraternity, so I am like the lone ranger :) when it comes to marketing and finance.

Do U think its good to try for Univ of Dallas, Univ of Tampa, Indiana State, Univ of Buffalo.

I wanted to go for John Hopkins but they do not offer a full time program, only a part-time MBA and that according to me would not be so good for me.
