Our core curriculum represents those courses determined to be critical in providing a solid overall business foundation with a health care focus. From strategy and finance to marketing, you will gain a broad business understanding that prepares you for leadership. 

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.

In addition, 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.
