Healthcare Markets and Analytics, Master of Business Administration (MBA)

Menu

This new MBA concentration focuses on how managers analyze and use health data to make managerial decisions. The MBA concentration is based on decision-making algorithms applying data to economic models that emphasize incentives that all the players in the health care system face.

Highlights

The goal of this concentration is to provide students with a deep dive into the healthcare sector that enables students to become players in this extraordinary industry which accounts for over one-fifth of the U.S. economy.  The concentration complements the general training students receive in the other business disciplines, but will be focused on the defined area of economics in the healthcare industry.  The learning outcomes of this new concentration will expect students to identify and understand:

  • How the healthcare sector is similar to, and different from, the rest of the economy.
  • How the behavior of the healthcare sector adheres to and deviates from economic principles.
  • The crucial and ever-increasing role of data in guiding the decision-making of both the healthcare industry and policy makers.
