Our MBA in health care leadership is designed for professionals employed as health care administrators, physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals who are seeking to develop their leadership and business skills and open new opportunities in their organizations and careers.  





Students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 for all MBA coursework, with no individual course grade lower than a C.


All graduate business students are expected to attend all class meetings. However it is understood that busy professionals may have to miss a class. If a student is unable to attend a class, the student must contact the instructor and take responsibility to meet the class objectives. This makeup will ordinarily require additional written work. It is the duty of the students to make arrangements for missed work. Outside of class, students must be able to schedule their time carefully and condition themselves to meet the rigorous demands of the program. If more than one class meeting will be missed within a course, the student shall contact the instructor and/or the MBA director in advance to discuss whether the student should enroll in the course at another time.

Transfer Credit

Students may transfer up to nine graduate credits taken within the last 10 years from a regionally accredited college or university into the MBA program. Requests to transfer credits must be made in the student’s first semester and accompanied by an official transcript from the institution at which prior credits were earned.
