MBA - Health Care Management Track

The business of health care is a complex, ever-changing entity that today's leaders are working hard to manage and transform. The health care management track prepares you to efficiently navigate your way through today's health care system from a business perspective.

Graduates from the program leave ready to work and innovate at insurance companies, government agencies, hospitals, physician's offices, health centers, diagnostic facilities, nursing homes and assisted living facilities. The professional skills you learn from this program can be applied to either entry-level or mid-career administrator and management positions.


When you pursue the MBA health care management track, you'll earn the same number of credits as Quinnipiac University's traditional MBA program. The first 28 credits of the program are the MBA core requirements. You may then take specialized courses that focus on health care administration – including one 3-credit elective – to complete the 46 credits you need to earn your MBA.
