Dear all,

I'm a medicine school graduate and I'm considering a career shift into business.

I'd like to ask if anyone knows which is stronger when applying for a healthcare administration job given that all have the same work experience:
- MD/MBA holder
- MHA holder
- MBA with a healthcare specialization "but no MD"

I'm asking so I can weigh my options of business schools. If MD can substitute a healthcare specialization, then I'll be having a wider options of schools and MBAs.

Thank you in advance,
