Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my experience of being enrolled in the EMBA program.
Deciding to join the program was a difficult and challenging decision for me, as I am from pure clinical background. I was wondering if I would be able to understand the administrative subjects and be aligned with other students.
However, the decision was the right decision, I was privileged to be taught by a selective well expert professors as well as being a part in a team with the classmates to share and exchange our experience.
The EMBA program has refined my managerial and leadership skills, through understanding the situational leadership styles, when to use them and the main elements to enhance the performance of my team in our organization. This was through understanding three main elements, leadership and organizational support, ability, and the capability. Moreover, during the critical pandemic period, MIS subject enriched my knowledge about the cross functional communication and how to manage the team who are working remotely and enhance their productivity.
On the other hand, studying the innovation and organizational changes allowed me to know that there are different tools to facilitate the organizational changes and ease their implementation such as ADKAR model which I was personally implemented to enhance the implementation of the new changes in the excellence program of the hospital.
Now, I do understand that the strategic plan is different from strategy which is confused by most of the organization. And there are a lot of sophisticated system which was taught by the DSS subject would help to start the data mining and understand the pattern of any analytical data for the organization. Let me tell you more, that the EMBA program allow me to understand the language of finance and accounting in the executive meeting that I am part of it.
On the personal level, now I am more aware about the marketing, and segmentation as well as political and economic news.
Finally, Although the period of studying was challenging because of the Covid-19 pandemic situation, the online study was well organized, with the supportive of Professor Hussain Al Tamimi. This makes me enjoy the study and participant with passion in the classes. I am proud to be a graduate of EMBA program.
