The Online MBA with a Healthcare Management Specialization allows students to explore the evolution of the U.S. healthcare industry. From the original, primitive forms of organized institutional care through to the current, increasingly integrated and managed care systems, the dynamics of the healthcare industry are examined in detail. Students are asked to compare current policies and proposals for health reform and look at how the actions taken in a given area correspond to the structure and function of other areas. While analyzing the impact of change in the field of healthcare, students are introduced to the interactions of the regulatory, economic, political, and social aspects of the healthcare system. The courses within this specialization analyze the managerial aspects of the industry including strategic decision making, environmental analysis, strategic formulation, and strategy implementation. Students discover how healthcare organizations meet their stakeholders’ numerous goals and manage their resources in this competitive environment.
