Applying to a dedicated MBA program, it is good for you to have relevant qualifications. A Bachelor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree by your side will indeed work in your favor here. However, it is not necessary but desired from candidates. It will simply make your application better among other candidates.

The preparation for applying to an MBA in healthcare management in the USA is pretty standard. You basically have to follow a list of steps to make it easier. I have prepared some steps with explanations later to give you a better idea.


  1. Prepare all your academic transcripts and curricular
  2. Get your necessary documents like ID, passport, bank statements
  3. Have work experience ready
  4. Give/gather standardized test GRE or GMAT (based on program reference)
  5. Prepare an English language proficiency test
  6. Have your SOP, LORs and Essays prepared
  7. Go to the official program page and apply for admission
  8. Fill out the application and submit all required documents
  9. Answer all questions asked and apply before the deadline
  10. Start your visa & scholarship process (after getting selected

I know I made it long, but this is the simplest way to apply. Your academic records are the base to apply for a program abroad. Have all of them gathered and prepare your document. Remember to choose an institute based on your profile because it will be a waste of time looking for alternatives later.

Remember that work experience and a standardized test are more than necessary. Business degrees like MBA require work experience. However, it is not compulsory to submit a record in healthcare for an MBA in healthcare. But if possible, try to gather some relevant work experience. GMAT is specially designed for business programs, while GRE is more flexible. Get one of those as per requirement.

An English language test is an absolute necessity for studying abroad. The USA prefers TOEFL over other alternatives. If possible, go for it. Your SOP, LORs and Essays are the most crucial element of your application. These documents alone can enrol you over a better GPA candidate. Practice them in advance and prepare with extra care.

After this, all you need to do is start your application. It will be available on the official program page. Submit all your documents and answer all questions in your application. After that, the central part from your side is almost complete. If you get selected for the program, you should start your visa and scholarship process.

If you need proper guidance on your application for MBA in healthcare, let me know. Here we can evaluate your profile and decide which MBAs in the USA are the best fit for you. Doing this can increase your chances of enrolment. Thanks.
