Health Care Management, M.B.A.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Graduate Program Requirements


Baldwin Wallace University’s Health Care MBA (HCMBA) program is designed for professionals working in the diverse healthcare sector who seek a formal graduate degree without interrupting their careers or interfering with weekday office or travel obligations.

HCMBA classes are offered on alternate weekends (except on occasions when avoiding holiday weekends forces sequential weekends) beginning at 2:00 P.M. on Friday and ending on Saturday at 3:30 P.M. This schedule, designed with a two-fold purpose, leaves the intervening and holiday weekends unencumbered and solves the problems of professionals whose full-time managerial responsibilities include heavy mid-week commitments. The two-day schedule enhances the opportunities for sharing experiences and building a sense of camaraderie among students.

Class sizes are small (no more than 25 students) and organized into interdisciplinary teams. Teams are selected to include a variety of professionals on each team. Participants learn through interaction with classmates who bring widely varied backgrounds to team projects and class discussions.

The program is built upon the systems approach to management that views organizations within the diverse Health Care industry as a dynamic, interdependent organism. Development of the interpersonal and organizational skills needed to lead teams, groups, and networks of providers is emphasized throughout the program. There is also a strong focus on “value added” health care reflecting the need to manage the relationship between cost and quality.

All classes are held at both Baldwin Wallace University in Berea and in Warrensville Heights.
