MSM-Healthcare Curriculum | Weatherhead

Master of Science in Management (MSM)-Healthcare Curriculum

The healthcare landscape is constantly evolving and growing increasingly complex, as payers experiment with new forms of payment, and providers struggle to improve the quality and efficiency of their operations. With transformation comes the necessity to develop innovative healthcare solutions and successfully adapt to changing market conditions. Strong managerial and leadership skills have never been as important to the success of healthcare organizations.

Weatherhead’s healthcare management curriculum is designed to advance the healthcare field by placing healthcare management professionals on the path towards innovative thinking and professional success.

The Master of Science in Management-Healthcare is available in two different formats to fit your needs as a working professional, the regular, two-year program and an accelerated one-year program.

The regular two-year program:

Designed for the working professional, students attend class one weekday night a week. The 30-credit-hour program is completed in two years. The MSM-Healthcare class forms a single cohort but because some of the classes overlap with the part-time MBA program, it also offers opportunities to make connections with members of the part-time MBA student body, a group diverse in interests and experience.
