An orthopedic surgeon and spinal specialist, Alex Vaccaro maintains a tightly organized schedule. He’s the Chairman of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Sidney Kimmel Medical Center at Thomas Jefferson University and President of Philadelphia’s Rothman Institute.
He’s also pursuing his Online Master’s of Business Administration through Temple University’s Fox School of Business.
In January, U.S. News & World Report named the Fox Online MBA the No. 1 program in the nation, in its 2015 rankings of the best online graduate business programs. Vaccaro estimates he commits two hours daily to his Fox Online MBA. Often, it’s more.
“I’m being honest when I say this: It’s one of the hardest and one of the most-rewarding things I’ve ever done,” said Vaccaro. “You know what you do for a living. Getting your MBA helps you figure out why you do what you do, and you’re able to do it better.”
