Hi, I am evaluating changing career into public health focused on global health and sustainability. I have had multiple good school (think JHU, GW, Berkeley) and got good advice. I wanted to reach out to this community and get other perspectives as well. I do not have a traditional public health background but do have over 20 years of experience in management/strategy consulting and recently "ventured" into sustainability working on the people health. My intent is to bridge the gap between private sector organization and public health and help organizations connect the "triple bottom line" to health of the employees, develop strategies, programs and initiatives, and develop measurement criteria to evaluate business impact. I have a bachelors in engineering, masters in management (strategy) and an MBA from top 10 school with a decent GPA. I have not taken the GRE yet and need to start preparing for it. I am focusing on part-time programs (preferably Dr PH) since cannot do any full-time ones, given my family commitments. Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts around how my profile would fit in for some of the top programs and what kind of GRE score would I need to get to compensate for my lack of PH background? Thanks in advance. Zman.
