Why do I teach business management to my students?
I teach business management because I want my students to make more money!
A recent research published in 2017 shows that money surpassed divorce, health and death concerns as the number one cause of stress for the Americans!
Other research shows that you need an annual income of at least $75,000 in North America to have a comfortable, happy and healthy life. Any income less than that makes you die faster, get more divorce and suffer more stress than those who make $75,000 per year or more.
I cannot comprehend in good conscious why health & medical schools do not teach the basics of business management to their students. It is a known fact that those who know more about business management make more money in their practices. And making more money will help these health professionals live longer and lead a happier life (as another research published last week showed that money indeed buys happiness specially when it is used to save time).
I personally feel it is the ethical duty of a school to make sure its students are well versed in all things related to business management.
We teach everything we know about business to our students. This is one of the main reasons why we graduate successful manual osteopaths.
