MSM-Healthcare Student Experience

The MSM-Healthcare is for students who wish to continue working full time while pursuing their degree. They experience the Weatherhead curriculum during evening classes, many of which overlap with the curriculum of our respected part-time MBA program. The MSM-Healthcare class will form a single cohort but will also have the chance to make connections with members of the part-time MBA student body, a group diverse in interests and experience.

Students enjoy one-on-one interaction with academic pioneers and industry leaders. Our faculty excel in teaching as well as research, and the opportunity to share their insights into exciting areas of management science is one that Weatherhead students prize. Read some of these experiences in Life at Weatherhead, a blog written by current students and alumni.

Weatherhead’s Career Management Office invites you to participate in on-campus career fairs, attend employer information sessions on and off-campus, and engage with professional associations throughout the city of Cleveland. Read more about Career Management.
