MBA Concentrations – Healthcare Management

As practitioners in medicine, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other allied health professions move into management positions, they increasingly find that their professional education has not prepared them for their new managerial responsibilities. Tasks such as leading people, developing programs, creating budgets, analyzing information, and planning strategic objectives are essential to those positions but are typically outside the practice of experienced healthcare professionals. The curriculum of Chatham's MBA Healthcare Management concentration is dedicated to helping practitioners strenghten their business acumen while preparing business professionals to succeed in management and executive roles in the healthcare field.

The Healthcare Management MBA concentration track provides integral managerial skills as well as important, and in some cases necessary, credentials for upward mobility in the healthcare arena. In addition, this program will help to develop a better understanding of the larger health care environment and to deal with the rapid changes that are taking place in the field.
