I am a college senior and I will graduate in December 2010. I am currently an MIS (Management Information Systems) major. This degree, at my school is basically computer science and business courses combined. Therefore, I learned programming and also many business aspects.
My initial plan is to work in a hospital setting with database management or somewhere around there. I would love to work with databases structures however I do not want to code for the rest of my life. I would rather help come up with the initial designs/needs of a system and have others implement it. However, I lack experience with health care courses, in my opinion.
I looked into many MBA programs and I have found a university which offers an MBA with a concentration in Health Care Administration. I feel that this would prepare me to take an adminstrative role in the health care world, and would give me a little push in the health care field that my undergrad degree did not.
I was just wondering if this is a good career plan? I have talked to many people in MBA programs about it to see if I am on the right track but they seem to offer me no advice, only discouraging words.
Thanks for your time!!
