The Johnson MBA provides a solid base in all the functional areas of business-accounting, finance, economics, marketing, operations management, strategy and leadership. In addition, the school offers the flexibility to tailor your own curriculum and the opportunity to develop expertise in specialized areas that, when combined with healthcare, can provide unique and highly valuable strengths.
The Sloan MHA delivers a comprehensive foundation in the health field and, like Johnson, encourages you to tailor your program to your own goals. Specialized health focused courses are offered, including finance, organizational behavior and human resources management, health policy, health care ethics, legal aspects of health care, quality improvement, long-term care, health facility planning and design, and supply chain management.
In addition to a mix of required and elective courses from both schools, you must participate in a 10-week summer internship, a required capstone course at Sloan and an opportunity to take an immersion learning sequence at Johnson.
Armed with a strong foundation in general management with specialized knowledge of health care, you will enter the job market with a distinct edge.
