MBA – Health Care Management Track

Managing costs and revenue streams for medical practices or implementing resources for better care delivery in hospitals and nursing homes are just a few examples of how health care managers meet the increasing and evolving business demands of this rapidly growing field.

Program Overview

As a health care manager, you’ll keep health services organizations competitive by increasing efficiency and quality of patient care while striving to eliminate costly practices. The business and leadership skills you’ll gain in our program, combined with the comprehensive knowledge of health care laws and regulations, make you an indispensable leader in a doctor’s office, hospital, long-term care facility or government agency.

Each day, you’ll play a vital role, from budgeting and billing strategies to overseeing a range of personnel issues. Advanced course work in health care policy, financial management, information systems and decision making prepare you for a job as a practice manager and health care consultant upon graduation. Your MBA additionally provides upward mobility for a future career as a medical facility director, department administrator and hospital CFO.

Our MBA program also is available through QU Online, allowing you the flexibility to balance your education with responsibilities of family and career. Internships in settings such as hospitals, assisted-living facilities, private practices and rehabilitation centers give you practical experience in an area of your professional interest.

Eligibility for a GMAT/GRE waiver does not guarantee admission. Applicants granted a waiver and subsequently denied admission may request reconsideration of their application with the inclusion of GMAT or GRE scores.

The final determination of a testing waiver is made by Quinnipiac's School of Business.  This will be done as quickly as possible, but students are encouraged to submit their applications and any accompanying waiver requests as early in the admissions cycle as possible in case there are questions, additional information is needed or the standardized testing requirement is not waived.
