The MBA in Health Systems Leadership prepares future executives to make a meaningful difference in a wide range of healthcare delivery and financing organizations. In addition to administrative managers, the program is well suited for physicians, pharmacists and other clinicians, lawyers, accounting professionals, and other consultants and advisors serving health system clients.
The 43-credit curriculum was designed in close collaboration with The School of Nursing and local healthcare system experts, and based on the Commission on Accreditation of HealthCare Management Education (CAHME) competency criteria. It includes courses such as Managerial Health Economics, Health Policy and Law, Healthcare Service and Clinical Quality, taught by highly qualified health professionals and faculty.
Students in the MBA Health Systems Leadership program are eligible for a free membership in both the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA) and the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE).
As an alternative to the full MBA, we offer a stand-alone 16-credit Graduate Certificate in Health Systems Management.
