Health Care UST MBA
Enhanced Learning Power
The Health Care UST MBA program is structured around a cohort model that emphasizes teamwork and collaboration. Each group of 25-30 professionals moves through the program together, conducting their online classes and campus visits as a group throughout the duration of the 27-month program. The time spent together on campus forms the basis for deep personal connections and shared learning. Cohort colleagues benefit from each others’ wealth of knowledge and varied perspectives.
Students draw upon their diverse experiences to provide meaningful examples and real-life case studies to the course dialogue and team projects. Many alumni report learning as much (or more) from their cohort colleagues as from their teachers! Your cohort will be a valuable network and resource pool long after graduation.
The cohort model is consistently rated as one of the major strengths of the Health Care UST MBA program.
Dr. Carl Patow, Health Care UST MBA '08, has been awarded the Parker J. Palmer Courage to Lead Award. Learn more about the diverse backgrounds and experiences of the students and alumni of the Health Care UST MBA program.

Healthy Learning Environment
"I believe the mix of physicians and non-physicians is a very positive feature of the program. I valued the contributions of the M.D.s and the other health care professionals in my cohort. Input from varied backgrounds and experiences contributes to a healthy learning environment."
