Master of Business Administration in Healthcare Leadership

General

Program Description

Today’s health care environment demands more of its leaders than ever before: deep understanding of economics, health policy, information management systems, patient satisfaction, ethics and legal issues and interprofessional collaboration, as well as knowledge of how it all fits together while transitioning to evidence-based accountable care systems. Through the MBA in Healthcare Leadership, you will gain valuable skills and competencies for effective management and executive leadership. Students can also incorporate an advanced certificate into their degree program and earn a second credential.

Ideal for:

  • health care executives and senior managers who seek hospital leadership positions
  • physicians who aspire to hospital or medical practice leadership
  • senior managers in health care-related fields, such as health insurance, pharmaceuticals, HMOs and medical supply, seeking to advance their knowledge and competencies
  • clinical professionals who seek to strengthen their management skills

Advantages

  • Finish more efficiently. Students can “test out” of courses through assessment of knowledge and prior learning. Accordingly, they learn precisely what they need to know for excellence in management.
  • Learn from distinguished faculty. The program’s designers co-authored the most up-to-date text on health care leadership. Our faculty includes a former hospital executive with consulting experience in strategic planning and market development, a prolific author of multiple works on healthcare leadership, a former director of healthcare marketing, an assistant New York state attorney general, and a physician who chaired a large clinical program in one of New York City’s largest health care systems. All faculty members are actively engaged in real-world health care settings, as well as in the classroom.
  • Enjoy flexibility. Students take all courses online and participate in two executive retreats.
  • Specialize. Students can couple their MBA program with a graduate certificate program in areas in which they need in-depth expertise.
  • Graduate with a plan. In the capstone experience, students use what they have learned to develop a strategic plan for a vital initiative within their own organizations.
