    MBA? DBA? Which to choose?

    I already have my MHA and am currently in a middle management position.  I'm wondering if it would be beneficial to pursue either degree?  What others have done?  I see more and more people with MHA & MBA credentials.  My overall career goal is to be a COO of a hospital/health system.  Any advice?

     

    Thanks!

    There will be some redundancy in another degree and with your focus on a hospitals, I'm not sure if the time and expense will pay dividends.  If there are business skills that need boosting, can work opportunities give you some of that?  Is there a program that would fast track you since you have another Masters? The DBA seems to be more than is needed.  Advancement to Fellow and ACHE Education would be a plus as well.  Mike Broscio - ACHE Career Services.

    Neither!  I'd look into a DHA.
