Physician MBA

Make bold changes — 
for healthcare and yourself.

Physician leaders are better equipped to tackle tough challenges when they possess both clinical and business expertise. That’s why the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University created the Physician MBA.

We are the only top-ranked business school to offer an MBA exclusively for physicians. This 21-month program is innovative and built on a rigorous curriculum, collaborative learning, healthcare-specific courses, and a flexible schedule that prepares physician leaders to succeed in your dual roles as patient advocate and business strategist.

You can earn an executive MBA in many places, but Kelley is the only school that translates business and management principles into actionable skills for physician leaders.

"This experience has been life-altering. It’s made me look at things in a different way—with a clear understanding of what’s happening in medicine, that things have to change, and that I can help make those changes."

Whether you enroll in the Physician MBA to become a CMO, alleviate burnout, or impact more patients than your own, your return on investment is immediate. Our students apply hands-on class projects to improve challenges within their organizations, and they capitalize on career coaching to earn new leadership positions before they even graduate.
