Here are the Top Executive MBA Programs for Cardiologists: UK, Europe and Asia

Executive MBA CardiologistQ) I am a doctor in the final stage of DM Cardiology from India. It is a super-speciality degree programme in Cardiology and its duration is three years. The completion is round the corner, July end. We function as Junior Consultants  during this degree programme and independently treat patients under the supervision of senior consultants . Additionally, I work as In-charge, cardiac critical care unit in the hospital.

I completed my MD in Internal medicine from India and was awarded a gold medal in the year 2009. Following that, I worked as a consultant for one year. During the same time, I had also finished my MRCP, a post graduate degree from London manadatorily taken by all doctors who practise in UK. I  have another valuable experience of working as a Junior Registrar in All India Institute of Medical Sciences in the year 2005 for a couple of months.

At the personal level, I belong to a family which runs and manages a network of hospitals. In the near future, I would be expected to serve as the director of the network. However, I realize that in order to fulfill this responsibility I need additional skills and understanding than what the usual education in medical school offers or working as a consultant does.

I have not appeared in GMAT and haven't really planned on taking it.

I am looking forward to taking Executive MBA in UK , Europe or some good school in Asia. I am not particularly looking for a healthcare based MBA but a program that is practical and stresses on entrepreneurship and leadership.

Admit1MBA Expert Answer

Yael - Admit1MBAGiven your experience and career goals, Executive MBA programs are the right way to go and will be beneficial to you, as you will build a network with senior decision-makers world-wide. In general, most Executive MBA programs focus on general management and leadership, without a focus on a specific field or industry.

Here are some of the top Executive MBA programs in Asia and the Europe:


INSEAD EMBA Ranked as one of the top schools globally, with a brand name that is powerful in Asia and Europe (less so in the US). INSEAD has a campus in Singapore, and the executive MBA will include modules at the other two campuses in Abu Dhabi and France. GMAT: you can decide to take an entrance exam instead of the test; it has a different structure from the GMAT but will still test your analytical skills. The INSEAD entrance exam also includes a case presentation.  

Oxford EMBA program:
The Said School of Business attract senior managers and entrepreneurs, and offer a 21-month EMBA program. GMAT: you can ask for a GMAT waiver from the school, based on your schooling and professional experience.

London Business School EMBA program:
You can’t go wrong with this Executive MBA program, which allows you to study in either London or Dubai, but they do require the GMAT, and only grant waivers in special cases. You should contact the admissions office to see if you qualify for one before applying.

Cambridge EMBA program:
A 20-month program located in the UK. The GMAT is required but you can ask for a waiver by contacting the admissions office. The EMBA is offered in just one location in the UK. One of the biggest benefits is the access it offers to the overall Cambridge network.

Chicago EMBA:
The executive program available in Singapore (which is moving to Hong Kong start at the January 2014 intake) is a powerful option for candidates in Asia looking for a challenging education. GMAT: you can request a GMAT waiver based on your academic background and professional experience.

The Kellogg–HKUST Executive MBA program:
This joint executive MBA program takes 18 months and will require you to be sponsored by your organization. GMAT: not required. With this program, you can tap into the strong network of both schools across Asia and the US.

Overall, all of these programs offer a strong academic education and will help prepare you for your future goals.  Since this is a big investment of your time and money, I highly recommend that you meet with current students, alumni, and the admissions officers at every school to learn more about the programs and the unique projects and opportunities each of them offers. Another major consideration for you would be the size, distribution, and power of the alumni network.

"I have not reviewed many books for MBA Admission consulting companies but doing it now to give all applicants a brief idea on what the book covers. The book includes 31 top MBA programs - almost all the top schools you have heard or considering for your MBA application. Each chapter is categorized by US States where there is at least one top MBA program. So you have California and Massachusetts with the most number of MBA programs and several states with one top program (Washington, Minnesota, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Virginia, and Maryland) and other states with two to three MBA programs. The book focuses on four aspects of an MBA program - curriculum, cost, class profile and post-MBA salary. For me, the breakdown of the cost and post-MBA industry was useful to make my decision on selecting the top 5 programs for 2017-18. It is a fascinating read in an industry where consultants overprice for their expertise. I recently bought a 30-page guide for $49. Compared to the obvious observation in that book, the 300+ page, MBA in US - the Ultimate guide is a goldmine of information and analysis." - Verified Purchase (21st June 2017)

"I bought the ultimate guide after a friend recommended it for me. The guide covers a lot of ground on the history of each prominent US states and goes into the reasons why a certain industry emerged from each state. In addition to the analysis of the economy, trends and expected changes in the next 5 years, the book features top MBA programs in each state with an extensive study of its curriculum. Ultimate guide is an essential reference book for MBA Applicants if they want to shortlist MBA programs based on value and cost, and not just ranking. " - Verified Purchase (14th June 2017)

"Should be a required reading before applying for an MBA. School events and MBA Tours are PR events disguised as a Q&A. On the contrary, the book is an unbiased analysis of each Top MBA program in the US supported by a large dataset and historical context on each industry. The guide builds a case for indstries that are likely to emerge as favourite for MBA graduates. Thorough and a valuable book." - Verified Purchase (15th June 2017)

"What I liked: The breadth of the information. Some of my favorite nonfiction books have taken the same approach as the ultimate guide have - cover background information in-depth. In the book, the author uses parallel threads to demonstrate the history of the state and the rise of industries. Will make you think how schools thrive based on the policy set by the state. California's obsession with Technology has revolutionized how we do Business and changed post-MBA trends. Many MBA applicants will be consulting or doing marketing for a Technology company. That is one key finding from the book. The latest development in AI, FinTech, and Automation is an additional context that I found valuable in the book.

Very informative. I would recommend that you read the book at least once in chronological order before using Table of Contents." - Verified Purchase (2nd July 2017)
