The MBA for Health-Care and Medical Professionals

As fast as health care is changing from a clinical perspective, it is changing equally fast from a business standpoint. The landscape will be vastly different 10 years from now … five years from now … one year from now.

The MBA for Health-Care from the Schneider School will help you not just keep pace, but set the pace. Courses will focus on evolving issues in the field, as well as the specific needs and interests of enrolled students. You’ll learn in a nimble, responsive, highly personalized program unmatched in the region.

As examples, elective courses may focus on:

  • Sound responses to changing economics of the health-care marketplace
  • Effective marketing of health-care organizations
  • Optimum organizational structure
  • Adroit management of clinical professionals

Course Requirements
All students of the MBA program must complete courses in both core and elective areas.

Core

All students, regardless of undergraduate major, are required to have successfully completed an undergraduate statistics course, typically engineering, business or social sciences statistics, before entry into the Schneider School MBA program.

Core Courses
All admitted students will be required to enroll in BUAD 500, Fundamentals of Accounting and Finance. However, if a student has successfully completed undergraduate accounting an finance coursework, the dean may waive enrollment in BUAD 500. Students are required to complete BUAD 500 as early in the program as possible.

Electives

The health-care concentration will require four 1.5-credit health-care and medical business-management upper-level courses (BUAD 579), plus two upper-level electives. The upper-level electives may be taken in any combination from BUAD 569 or BUAD 589. Specific topics for these courses change from semester to semester to ensure that students can experience a wide and dynamic range of material.
