MBA for doctors

Like I said in my previous post, I enrolled into executive MBA a little over a year ago.
Good things:
1.they didn't ask me to take GMAT ( I would've failed miserably),
2.the tuition is not atrocious since it's a relatively obscure albeit real, as opposed to online, school of business ( consider this- the renowned schools like Kellogg and NYU ask for about 120k/2 yrs...)
3. The pace is not frenetic
4. There are several "concentrations", including Marketing, Health Care Administration, and Finance.
5. I'm in "fast track", 48-credit, program

The bad things:
1. You get what you paid for. Sometimes I feel I know more than a certain professor.
2. The new style teaching means asking your students to buy a particular textbook, and then in class use the PowerPoint slides from the same publisher, with identical color scheme and content. Good for teachers- in such case, no need to prepare for the class. Bad for students since the class doesn't add anything beyond a textbook material.
3. Too much reliance on group assignments.

Now, for the reasons to do an MBA... Probably in a different post.

The above thought is smart and doesn’t require any further addition. It’s perfect thought from my side.
