About

Overview

Designed with healthcare practitioners in mind

One of the most important things you can do as a healthcare administrator is make sure you run a well-managed organization. Not only is it in the best interest of patients, it’s also in the best interest of the staff. This specialized program, designed for healthcare practitioners, will prepare you to meet the challenges of an ever-changing administrative environment.

If you’re a health care practitioner looking to transition over to the business side of your industry, this program will help you get there. The curriculum of the Healthcare Administration for Practitioners program of Concordia University Wisconsin offers the kind of broad-based knowledge you’ll need to become a middle- or upper-level manager in a health care organization. You’ll cover a lot of ground in this program, looking into topics as varied as human resources, public policy, and strategic management. Our flexible program consists of six continuous eight-week terms per year. Plus, an expedited program completion is also possible.

What to expect

This MBA concentration was created for health care professionals who are currently enrolled in or who have completed a health care graduate degree. This program requires 39 credits, or 13 courses. While this may seem daunting, the truth is that this flexible program can be completed in less than two years. Courses can be taken face-to-face at our main campus, at one of our off-site locations, or online. Because we want to give you the best start, we accept up to six graduate transfer credits. What’s more, no GMAT or GRE are required to apply.

At the end of this program, you’ll better understand how to manage health care organizations and handle issues in budgeting, human resources, and public policy. You’ll gain expertise in the field, develop a work portfolio to present to potential employers, and have the opportunity to complete an internship in the field. Plus, you’ll also come out a stronger leader with increased financial competence, better writing abilities, and strategic problem-solving skills so you can be equipped to make the most impact - wherever you serve in the health care industry.
