“Having played an integral role in developing General Electric’s long-lasting relationship with the radiology profession, I know how important radiology is to the future of health care in America,” said Jack Welch, founder of the Jack Welch Management Institute. “As the business of medicine becomes more complex, radiology professionals need the skills to confront the management and leadership challenges that will affect the future of radiology for years to come. The Jack Welch Management Institute executive MBA program — built on the battle-tested practices that I developed at GE — will help radiology professionals put winning principles to work in their organizations.”
