From Classroom to Clinic: MBA Health Concentration

Did you know that employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow 16% from 2008 to 2018, faster than the average for all occupations. Healthcare now represents 16% of the U.S. GDP and is projected to grow at double the rate of the overall economy for the foreseeable future.

The Wake Forest University Schools of Business provides an MBA Health Concentration which will prepare future health leaders to succeed in this dynamic environment and to take advantage of the many opportunities for growth. The program will provide all students with core knowledge in health policy and public health, including regulation and reimbursement policies.

Entrepreneurs and managers of health services who are often responsible for multi-million dollar facilities and thousands of employees require effective analytical skills, human resource management tools, a sound understanding of finance and reimbursement, an ability to recognize strategic opportunities and devise innovative responses, and the ability to cooperate strategically with public-sector partners.

In keeping with the Wake Forest University motto, Pro Humanitate, the new MBA health concentration will provide comprehensive familiarity with and ability to bridge clinical and public sector cultures. The two-year MBA with a health concentration will equip you with the skills, mindset, and experience required to expand your current position or to step out into new areas of healthcare, biotechnology development and commercialization, and public-private sector health partnerships.

Career tracks available within the health concentration:

  • Healthcare Delivery & Support Services (Operations)
  • Healthcare-Related Business & Life Sciences (Innovation and Entrepreneurship)
