Hello I am a prospective applicant. I have a Masters degree in Biomedical and 7 years work-ex in the healthcare technology industry.
GMAT score of 720 and I am from India.

I need some info on the Healthcare courses available in the 2 year MBA program. I have experience in the healthcare technology sector and need to broaden my expertise in areas such as General Management, Strategy and Finance.

Can you please provide me some contacts of students who are also majoring or taking courses related to the Healthcare industry?

Thanks.

woncosmo - I just e-mailed the president of the health care club - at the time they were in the process of transitioning to the new leadership for next year, but I think their website has been updated. So I'd try there for contact info. He sent me a list of the classes. There are only a few specifically offered through the business school - most of them were offered through the MPH program. I did specifically ask him if they were looking to formalize their health care program and he said they were trying to work with the dean to do that. I'll PM you the excerpt from the question I asked him which has that info plus some more.

There are a few courses offered at the business school, but the better ones are offered at the school of public health. I am on the healthcare board at Ross and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Feel free to PM me.

aditi,

I think the schools are fairly similar. GM and consulting is strong at Ross but I would expect the actual hiring #s (for consulting) to be higher at Kellogg. That said, at either school, your probability of landing a GM/consulting job does not increase/decrease because of these #s. You will have to beat out other super-qualified candidates to be succesful. So, if you get admitted to both schools, go with your instinct. You will be alright.

I have no idea about VC.You should email the EVC club at michigan to get more info.

Hello,

What kind of healthcare marketing do you do? I have been approached for a couple of healthcare/science marketing positions but nothing serious. Can you name some good companies that do this? What schools do you feel are the best for healthcare marketing?

-Thanks

I submitted R2 application for 2010. I noticed on the application pdf after submission that I have listed a wrong year of employment.

I have submitted the application though. DO you guys know if I can do anything now?

I feel like killing myself for this. This was my best app.

Don't sweat it
1. A small error like that probably won't make a difference. The people reviewing the apps aren't that nit-picky. If you made a ton of errors, that'd be one thing, but one mistake in something as long as a bschool app is unlikely to make a difference.
2. It's already submitted, so there isn't much to do about it (so try not to worry about it). If you really want, you could email admissions.

Good luck

Hello Everyone,
Ross is definetely one of my top choices for B school and I plan on visiting this spring. However, on the website it only has visit days up until February and I was hoping to visit March or April. I called and was told this is because of MAP. Are any of you knowledgable about any other opportunities to visit in the spring? like March or April.. or is the only opportunity to interact and interface with students in before 1st years leave for MAP.

If you want, you can visit in March and April. The 1st years wont be here, but the 2nd yrs will still be on-campus. The school just doesn't offer the official visit days during the spring.

You will select your top 10 MAP projects from a list of about 100. Then, the MAP office assigns you to one of the chosen companies. Some people get their 1st, others their 10th, but most people get 1 of their top 5. There are no interviews.

Re:consulting club, you should email someone directly at the club. Contact info should be available on the club website.

Do you by any chance know if visitors outside of the official Ross dates in Feb get the whole enchilada? Class visit, tour, Thursday Happy Hour etc. I just want to know if there is anything I will miss out on (except for the first years of course) if I do wait until March.

I'm a member of the consulting club, though haven't been very active so can provide some description, though if you want more info, you should reach out to the officers. The club hosts educational sessions about consulting, the recruiting process, networking, etc. They also have mock interviews, a conference, and facilitate students who want to do case interview practice. They provide updates on consulting companies coming to campus and setting up time to meet with recruiters one-on-one. There's also a mentorship program where they pair 1st years with 2nd years.
