Health Care UST MBA
The business of health care is not traditionally taught in medical school. Today's physician leaders are expected to tackle challenges that require knowledge of organizational management, finance, business strategy, law, marketing, operations and more. And they're expected to do so within the context of an extremely complex, rapidly changing environment with myriad stakeholders.
Physician leaders lead not only physicians; they must lead organizational and systemic change.
The Health Care UST MBA offers a unique opportunity to:
- Learn the business tools and management skills you need to confidently accept new challenges, question assumptions, assess new initiatives and evaluate the system-wide impact of business decisions.
- Enhance and challenge your understanding of the health care system with cohort colleagues from all sectors of the industry and from all functional areas within an organization. To generate buy-in and enact change, you must understand the language, success factors, priorities and connections of stakeholders throughout the system.
- Bring the knowledge of best practices and current trends from both outside and within the health care industry to your organization.
- Develop a life-long professional network of colleagues outside your organization and specialty area.
The Health Care UST MBA is consistently ranked by Modern Healthcare magazine as a Top Business Graduate School for Physician-Executives.
