So, a while back I mentioned that I would be applying to CIHR’s Science-to-Business (S2B) program, which provides scholarships for individuals with PhDs in a health related field to do MBAs. And the good news is that I was fortunate enough to receive one of these scholarships, which I’ll be using to take the part-time MBA program at UBC. The bad news, however, is that I’m going to have to take my leave from blogging here on the Black Hole, as working full-time while doing this intensive MBA program won’t leave me with enough time for writing here. I’m sure I’ll pop in once in a while to write a guest posting, especially if I learn anything new that might be of interest to Black Hole readers.
And speaking of guest postings, since I’m leaving Dave here to carry the torch here all on his own, if you are interested in contributing a guest posting, I’m sure he’d greatly appreciate it. Just send him an email with any ideas you have!
As well, CIHR has asked those of us who have received S2B awards to spread the word about the opportunity, as the competition is running again in 2012. So if you have a PhD in a health-related field and think you might be interested in pursuing an MBA, be sure to check it out (the deadline is February 15, 2012).
