Who Should Apply?

The Vanderbilt Master of Management in Health Care program is designed for working professionals who are managers, healthcare practitioners, clinicians, and executives who are in —or will be moving into—management roles within a private or public health care delivery organization, including clinics, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and pharmacies. It is also suited for non-clinicians and other healthcare professionals who are tasked with managing clinical employees. With few exceptions, we expect these individuals to be sponsored or endorsed by their current employers. Candidates should have at least five years of relevant work experience and a demonstrated track record within the organization to fully benefit from this program.

How to Apply

To be considered, all applicants must have:

  • A completed, submitted online application
  • Undergraduate transcripts (and graduate transcripts, if applicable)
  • GMAT or GRE score recommended, not required
  • Five years of relevant work experience
  • Sponsorship or endorsement by current employer
  • Personal interview


Am I Ready?

Some questions you should be asking yourself before you apply:

  • Can I meet the requirements needed to submit an application?
  • Can I dedicate extra study hours each week outside of class and balance my personal and professional responsibilities?
  • Am I willing to dedicate one night a week and one weekend a month to attending class for one year?

Is my employer ready?

  • Does my employer understand the time commitment of the degree?
  • Is my employer receptive to my new ideas so that my new skills and solutions have a chance of gaining implementation?
  • Is my employer willing to offer financial sponsorship?

Is my family ready?

  • Is my support system (spouse, partner, children) prepared for my individual and group study commitments inside and outside of the classroom?
  • Does my family understand the importance of my time away, especially on weekends?

We take business personally.

We know that, in the end, your questions and concerns are as unique as you are. So our admissions staff is available to sit down with you for a personal consultation. We’ll help answer your questions and help you assess whether the timing is right for you to apply. 

The program equipped me with a profound understanding of the intersection between healthcare and business management, enabling me to tackle complex challenges with innovative solutions.
