Michael J. Singh, MD, an Executive MBA-Healthcare student in the Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business at Pitt, is among the Poets&Quants’ Top 101 Best and Brightest Executive MBAs across the globe.

The list celebrates Executive MBA students from the Class of 2022 who embody the excellence and voices of their schools. These students are considered to “personify excellence – be it academic performance, extracurricular involvement, or professional achievement.”

Carrie R. Leana, academic director of the Executive MBA-Healthcare program at Katz, said Singh “not only performs highly at an individual level, but he also creates a positive learning environment for his fellow classmates.”

She continued: “Our program is based on a strong cohort model and Dr. Singh is considered a leader in the class. On a personal level, Dr. Singh is approachable, constructive, and a team player. He has a strong but unassuming leadership style that welcomes the contributions of others.”

Focus on Healthcare Leadership

The Pittsburgh region is known for its top-tier healthcare opportunities for students and professionals. The Executive MBA in Healthcare at Katz teaches experienced professionals in the industry how they can shape and adapt to an ever-changing medical future.

Singh, the UPMC Shadyside chief of Surgical Services and site chief of Vascular Surgery, credits the Katz program with expanding his knowledge of healthcare management, departmental finances, health insurance, capital budgeting, and administration and leadership.

“The most important factors for me in choosing Katz were program rigor and reputation, comprehensive core classes, opportunity for electives, program format, and accommodating class schedule,” he said, adding, “Your future is created by what you do today, not tomorrow.”
