MBA in Health Care Management (HCMBA)
Why the BW Health Care MBA?
Health care in America is a complex, dynamic, rapidly changing industry. The rising cost of services, the rapid proliferation of new technologies and the growing number of uninsured persons all contribute to creating complex challenges for consumers, providers, business and government. The BW HCMBA gives you the knowledge and skills to navigate this complexity and contribute to sound business solutions.
The BW HCMBA is built on the foundation of a sound MBA curriculum with the added dimension of systematic integration of health care issues and applications. Students focus on developing a wide range of business skills, while exploring current and emerging health care trends. The diversity of student backgrounds, small class size and emphasis on team learning coupled with the accessibility of experienced faculty creates an excellent learning environment.
The Health Care MBA is designed for professionals working in health care settings and related fields who seek a graduate degree without interrupting their careers or interfering with weekday obligations. The program consists of 10 core management courses and two health care courses, offered on alternate weekends beginning at 2:00 p.m. on Friday and ending Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Classes meet 10 times in each of the four semesters and there are no classes during the summer. The program is designed to be completed in two years.
With an HCMBA, career mobility takes many different forms. Many graduates have moved from clinical positions to management and administrative roles. For others the move has been to a new department within the organization or to a new organization such as an insurance or pharmaceutical company.

You can be sure BW graduates are addressing the health care challenges and making the health care system more responsive to the needs of consumers and the community.
