The ACR’s Radiology Leadership Institute (RLI) program will award credits towards a Master’s in Business Administration from Babson College’s Olin Graduate School of Business.
RLI participants can use their credits for Babson’s Fast Track MBA program, which normally requires 46 credits over 21 months to complete. Up to four Babson credits will be awarded to participants who complete levels IV of the RLI program. Additionally, RLI participants are not required to take the GMAT prior to admission in the Fast Track program, and physicians entering the program with advanced standing credits are entitled to take additional elective courses (equivalent to the number of credits earned through advanced standing) at no additional cost.
“While the RLI equips radiology professionals with the leadership skills they need to advance their careers and strengthen the radiology profession, many of radiology’s future leaders would benefit from earning an MBA as well. I am thrilled that the RLI and Babson have teamed up to offer today’s radiology professionals both. I encourage RLI participants at all levels to take advantage of this unique opportunity,” said Cynthia S. Sherry, MD, FACR, medical director of the RLI and chair of the ACR Commission on Leadership and Practice Development, in the press release.
