    Please tell me friends if doing MBA after MBBS is a good option. I hear stories where after MBA doctors got placed in pharma industry with above 10 lakhs per year remuneration. In ISB hyderabad, last year the doctor in the batch topped and is now placed in some sweedish pharma company for 80 Lakhs per year. People who are MBA graduates of non IIM colleges are being placed for 4 Lakhs is something i already know. IIM MBA's get about 7 Lakhs. MBA in ISB is 1 year course where as MD is 3 years. any MBBS, MBA grad please suggest

    Hi crazydoc, there are 6 mnths and 1year courses at various MBA colleges which have some weightage while looking for a job. Dont have an idea how good are they. Please refer to recent (abt 2 months back) issue of OUTLOOK MONEY for more info. TO do 1 Year MBA at ISB hyd you have to have at least 2 years experience after your graduation. All you need then is to clear IELTS and G-MAT with 650+ score. Please confirm from the college itself. Costs 15 Lakhs. All the best

    Yes, When an engineer can get a good job profile with handsome salary package ; why not a doctor! Yes MBA is a good option for young doctors. :) Medicos are preferred in biotech, pharma, microbilogical labs and MBA enhance their chance to explore more opportunities in management.ISB.IIMs are good options.

    I am an MBBS MBA. I did my MBA from ISB,right after finishing my internship. I opted not to go for pharma although the salaries they offered were fabulous (to the tune of 9 to 13 lakhs in the domestic market). I don't know about the international market as am married and needed to stay in India.
    I am currently working in a hospital and loving it! i enjoy the job and the pay packet is good (though lower than pharma)
    The other doctor from my batch got placed in Novartis abroad and is indeed enjoying a great salary.
    A piece of advice: Do go through the course outline before you go in for an MBA..


    hi,Buddy.Can u tell me what is the cost of doing MBA from the your institute and how to aproach for the admission?Can you tell me any website where i can find the information?Thanks in advance.

    hi all,

    Interesting to see that so many doctors are interested in MBA. Before taking such a carier shift one has to do lots of introspection and ask yourself is MBA what I really want? It takes lot of courage and conviction to shift your line of work.

    I have done lots of research(???) about MBA as carier option after MBBS. I am presently serving Army as a medical officer. I had thought of doing MBA after my 5 years of service, but when I ask myself honestly, Is selling medicines what u want to do? My heart says never. I would rather settle for less money than sell medicines.

    But this is my story, who is drawing a salary of 3,60,000 per year. I am happy with the money I get. In case u guys out there are terribly unhappy with work you are doing, drawing a mediocre salary then MBA is a good option provided u have the conviction to do it.

    of all the branches marketing, HR, operations, I think will suit an MBBS grad. Moreover, choice of ur branch depends on ur work experience.

    If u chose to do MBA from universities abroad it will cost u around 25 to 45 lacs. You may or maynot get scholarships. pre-requisites are GMAT score of about 650+ out of possible 800, resume, a statement of purpose as to why you want to pursue an MBA, letters of recommendation from your boss, some essays. getting admission to top MBA schools is very diffucult. You will have to have about 2-5 years of work experience following your graduation. there will be interview during which your conviction to do an MBA will be interrogated.

    In india, you may try to bell the CAT, or other school specific entrance exams. there are 2year MBA courses, and there are 1 year Post graduate program for those who have work experience. To get more info about MBA u can visit you may also visit Indian business school website

    If u do plan to do an MBA try to do it from top colleges.

    Hey bye the way I am seeing lots of ads on news paper about a college in bangalore talkin abt clinical research. THis thing has lots of scope. for all those looking for alternate carrier option please have a look at that. It sounds great.

    all the best
    all the best.

    hi ! i am also a doc & find mba as a great option with high profile job . but min 60% eligibility criteria & loss of social respect a doc commands makes it a bit un cool to shunt such a profession . i believe in proper set up a doc can build the py as he desires, but still wanna know if simple local university mba could also be so high paying.
