Immediate, Lasting ROI.
For You and Your Company.

When you choose to pursue a Masters of Management in Health Care degree, you’ll benefit from a program design that enables you and your organization to reap benefits right away — and for the long term.

Today’s healthcare organizations demand managers who comprehend the value and intricacies of practice yet have the confidence, expertise and skills to build and manage people, programs, and organizational initiatives. You may be highly proficient and committed to excellence in patient care, administration, or another technical area, but chances are good that you haven’t had the time or resources to acquire the management tools to complement your current skills. You may also be seeking vision across more areas of your healthcare organization to help you lead at a higher level.

“I learned an enormous amount from economics and accounting that has helped me with what I do every day. They have also helped me understand the viewpoints of my colleagues in different areas and how to look at a situation in a different way than I could before.”

Cathy Malone

“The program has given me the tools to manage in healthcare. It has also opened doors and created connections for me. And I think the most important skill I have gained is time management. To balance life, work and school is very difficult. But once you master that, you can apply it to other things in life."
