Program Description:

An MBA degree is the recognized standard in business education. At the University of St. Thomas, we take the MBA one step further by tailoring it specifically to the unique opportunities and challenges you face in health care. Health Care UST MBA students represent a broad cross-section of professionals that share a common goal: to shape positive outcomes for the health care system. You will gain a systematic understanding of the business of health care with a cohort of colleagues that represent all aspects of the system, including providers, health plans, suppliers, and the government. The 27-month accredited program features an integrated approach to learning designed to meet the needs of busy professionals. Two on-campus sessions each semester provide concentrated, face-to-face time with faculty and cohort colleagues, forming the basis for deep personal connections and shared learning. In addition, you will take part in a three-day Washington, D.C., seminar with former U.S. senator Dave Durenberger, giving you an insider’s view into the complexities of the U.S. health care system. Online coursework between campus visits provides the flexibility you need to complete your degree while continuing your full-time employment. Our staff and faculty provide interactive, executive-level support whether you are attending class on our Minneapolis campus or working from home, wherever that may be. For more than 15 years, the Health Care UST MBA has graduated health care professionals and physician leaders that form an engaged, supportive network in the Midwest and across the country. Our reputation of excellence and integrated ethics training ensures your degree will have value in the marketplace, open doors to new opportunities, and prepare you to make a positive impact on the health care industry.
