Curriculum, Health Care Management MBA

The major components of the Health Care Management MBA curriculum are the foundation program, which may be satisfied by equivalent undergraduate work, the MBA core program, the health care management concentration, professional development workshops, and the administrative residency, which may be waived for students having managerial experience. The last two components are described in the professional development section.


The foundation program consists of coursework designed to ensure that all students have exposure to a common body of basic business knowledge before beginning the MBA core program. In general, students who have completed an undergraduate degree in business from a U.S. institution within five years of matriculation will have met the foundation requirements. Such students are not required to take the foundation courses.

The equivalent of the following foundation coursework is required of all MBA students:
