Should you get an MBA or an industry position? [#permalink]

12 Jul 2014, 09:00
 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua Current Student): Should you get an MBA or an industry position? Please note: this post was written back in 2013 when I just started my MBA. I'll update this again later as now have more insights to share as an MBA student. In addition, the original target audience for this post are scientists, although general principles will apply to all backgrounds.With the scarcity in academic job openings, many, if not most, life sciences professionals are considering industry positions. This was definitely the prevailing sentiment at the 2013 NIH career symposium. A commonly asked question at these events is, "should I pursue an MBA to enhance my resume, or should I just try to find a job at a company?"Continue reading »

 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua Current Student): Health Care Employment Stats for Leading MBA Programs One helpful factor to consider when choosing which MBA program to apply to are the employment statistics. While almost all MBA programs have solid consulting and banking employment numbers, health care results are less consistent across schools.I took a look at top 20 programs that were known for health care or had significant recruiting numbers for the industry. I then went on to each program's website and analyzed publicly available employment data to draw some comparisons between schools. Initially I wanted to look at biotech and pharma stats only, but very few schools offered that level of detail, so the following data is for all health care companies. Here's a rough look at the health care employment results between leading US MBA programs.Continue reading »

 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua Current Student): Byron Sharp's How Brands Grow This book was given to me as a gift from a very senior leader in marketing. I was told that the book would cover things that are not taught in MBA programs. After reading the book, I must say that I agree. In my marketing classes, I was intrigued by why established brands still spent so heavily on advertising and how brands actually measured advertising effects, while not controlling for confounding variables. This book looks at empirical evidence and proposes the laws of marketing.Continue reading »

Does School Location Affect Fuqua MBA Recruiting? Not for Ph [#permalink]

26 Jul 2014, 18:00
 FROM From Bench to Board (Fuqua Current Student): Does School Location Affect Fuqua MBA Recruiting? Not for Pharma A question I get asked a lot is whether Duke Fuqua's location puts students at a disadvantage when it comes to recruiting for health care. My answer is no, because Fuqua is a target school for many companies that recruit MBAs and they make an effort to come to the Duke campus. However, I did not know objectively how Fuqua compared with schools that were local to health care hubs. I took some time and got some data from LinkedIn, and used the pharma industry as an example. Surprisingly, at least for pharma, Fuqua has a stronger presence than many local schools.Continue reading »
