Every industry is undergoing a seismic shift in how it operates, becoming faster and more connected because of digital technology. Health care and related industries are no different. You now live, work and compete in an age of digital disruption. So what does that mean for you?

How can you become fluent in the new digitally inspired language of business? How will you gain the cross-functional management view required to take your career to the next level? And how can you do this while maintaining the high demands of your current job?

In the UCI Paul Merage School of Business Health Care Executive MBA program, you will learn to think differently and creatively, anticipating challenges and strategic opportunities arising from emerging technologies. Gain valuable connections with peers from the pharmaceutical, medical device, managed care, insurance, healthcare management, and healthcare policy industries, many of whom have advanced or doctoral degrees. You will learn the fundamentals of business management and a thorough understanding of the economic, political, and social dynamics that are reshaping the global healthcare industry.

The course of study is structured to expose you to a full range of business disciplines utilizing a variety of elements: case studies, lectures, distinguished speakers and team projects.

Study Groups Foster Teamwork

Your team members and other classmates will be an integral part of your learning experience. In this lock-step cohort program, the class stays together for the duration of the program. Study groups are formed to encourage teamwork. A key advantage is the sense of community that develops among students as you study together, confront similar workplace challenges, and learn from the group's broad collective experience.
