The concentration in Healthcare Management complements a solid grounding in management and leadership, provided in our established accelerated Business Administration curriculum, with six modules that deliver in-depth application to the specific challenges of the health services industry. Students explore various legal, ethical, financial, marketing and regulatory considerations faced by healthcare managers and develop the sound teamwork and decision-making skills required by successful leaders. Using a project-based learning model, coursework aims to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the components of today’s complex healthcare delivery system.
The structure of classes reinforces the importance of experiential and team-based learning. Students are teamed and work together on projects and presentations both inside and outside of the classroom. Students are encouraged and expected to voice their opinions and reflect on their learning. Classes take many forms but generally consist of some lecture with real life application of theory, class discussions, review of assignments and presentations.
