Carlson MBA students can complement their MBA education with a medical industry specialization (MILI). MILI gives students opportunities to prepare for leadership track careers in functional areas of the medical industry including finance, marketing, consulting, operations, and information technology. Specific courses at the Carlson School draw on the University faculty's significant scientific, technical, policy, legal, and ethics expertise relevant to the medical industry.
The Carlson School of Management and other colleges at the University of Minnesota offer a wide variety of courses intended to enhance understanding of the medical industry and to prepare students for successful and rewarding careers.
"I want to capitalize on my passion for science and business, and with the Medical Device nexus that exists here in Minnesota, the MBA/MILI is hands down the best opportunity that I can pursue. With our existing ties to our Industry Council and the passion that Steve Parente brings to MILI, I can only imagine what the future of this degree will bring. It's really assuring to know that large corporations recognize the value that this specialization affords."
