Health Care UST MBA
The UST MBA Foundation
A master of business administration degree (M.B.A.) is the globally recognized standard in business education, regardless of industry. Our core curriculum represents those courses determined to be critical in providing a solid overall business foundation. From Strategy and Finance to Human Resources and Marketing, you will gain a broad business understanding that prepares you for leadership.
The UST MBA programs are guided by four Assurance of Learning (AOL) goals:
- Business acumen
- Critical thinking
As a student, you will learn the business foundation that can be applied to business models in all sectors of the economy. Your courses will examine best practices, management tools and trends from across industries and how to apply or modify them to new conditions or business models. You will establish mental models for ethical decision making and strategic leadership, and develop frameworks to think creatively about new opportunities and challenges.
To further support our AOL goals, the Health Care UST MBA has launched a new program of personalized leadership assessments for our incoming students. This series of assessments focuses on leadership and critical thinking skills and provide the basis for a professional development plan specific to your individualized development priorities.
The Relevance of a Health Care Focus
Health care is a business--a very special business. Integrating the unique issues and challenges of health care into every course provides the relevance and context to put the skills to work immediately in your organization. Courses explore lessons learned from outside the healthcare industry and how they apply, or could be tailored to, the health care sector. Class projects are directly related to your current organizational objectives.
Your cohort colleagues provide new perspectives and expertise from all aspects of health care, contributing to a comprehensive understanding of health care from a systemic perspective. Your cohort will also become a life-long professional network of colleagues outside of your current organization and specialty area.
The Health Care UST MBA is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Health Care Management Education (CAHME). Our faculty combines exceptional educational credentials with professional experience drawn from leading health care organizations.
Having a fundamental understanding of business principles and practice in health care gives you the ability to impact the business decisions facing health care today.
