The School of Business offers a 35-hour course of study leading to the Master of Business Administration in Healthcare Management (HMBA) degree. This program is targeted for individuals who currently work in the field of health care, those who want to explore a career in this field, or those making a transition into the health care sector. The curriculum consists of 11 courses, preceded by a two-hour orientation course: Introduction to Healthcare Management.
A student may be able to transfer up to nine hours of graduate level health care management-related coursework into the program to replace equivalent courses approved by the Director of Graduate Business Programs.
