What to Expect

This MBA concentration was created for healthcare professionals who are currently enrolled in or who have completed a healthcare graduate degree. This program requires 39 credits, or 13 courses. While this may seem daunting, the truth is that this flexible program can be completed in less than two years. Courses can be taken face-to-face at our main campus, at one of our off-site locations, or online. Because we want to give you the best start, we accept up to six graduate transfer credits. What’s more, no GMAT or GRE are required to apply.

At the end of this program, you’ll better understand how to manage healthcare organizations and handle issues in budgeting, human resources, and public policy. You’ll gain expertise in the field, develop a work portfolio to present to potential employers, and have the opportunity to complete an internship in the field. Plus, you’ll also come out a stronger leader with increased financial competence, better writing abilities, and strategic problem-solving skills so you can be equipped to make the most impact - wherever you serve in the healthcare industry.
