MBA in Healthcare Management
As healthcare practitioners move into management positions, they often find themselves unprepared for managerial responsibilities. Tasks such as leading people, developing programs, creating budgets, analyzing information, and planning strategic objectives are essential to those positions but typically lay outside the practice of experienced healthcare professionals.

- Help healthcare practitioners strengthen their business acumen
