O que eu aprenderei?

Gain practical and applicable insights into the U.S. healthcare industry in the Executive Master of Business Administration with a Specialization in Healthcare Management online program from UNCW. This program extends beyond a typical online MBA experience to provide a truly collaborative learning environment.

Learn to navigate the evolving regulatory complexities of the contemporary healthcare landscape in the Executive MBA with a Specialization in Finance online program from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. This high-engagement program enhances your online coursework with dynamic residencies on campus and abroad, fostering abundant opportunities for hands-on learning, peer interaction, and networking.

In this program, you will learn the various facets of a complex, trillion-dollar industry that accounts for more than 18% of our country's GDP, including thousands of hospitals, nursing homes, specialized care facilities, independent practices and partnerships, web-based and IT-supported service companies, managed care organizations, and major manufacturers.

You will acquire a thorough understanding of healthcare analytics and the organizational structure of healthcare systems. As the industry continues to grow, complications arise in the ongoing challenges of controlling costs, expanding consumer access and improving the quality of processes and patient outcomes. Government legislation and shifting regulations continue to influence healthcare delivery and payment systems.

Our rigorous core MBA curriculum examines constitutional, legislative, judicial, regulatory and public policy regulations within the business environment. You will study the principles and theory of financial and managerial accounting, with an emphasis on financial analysis and managerial decision making. Enrich your background in major information technology concepts and issues that business manager’s face, along with strategic and tactical issues of information systems and technology used to support and lead the operations of any organization.

As part of this unique program, you will benefit from two on-campus residencies—intensive weekends of face-to-face managerial training and experiences that provide a bridge between content knowledge and real-world application. During these on-campus sessions, you will develop and promote a diverse array of managerial soft skills that only an on-campus environment can yield, such as problem-solving, persuasion, teamwork and leadership.

In addition to these vital networking opportunities, you also will participate in a one-week international residency at one of several locations in Europe or Asia that enables you to consult with actual foreign clients and present recommendations for addressing potential challenges on a global scale. This Executive MBA program places you in small, interactive cohorts of experienced peers-progressing together through the program and building relationships that extend beyond graduation. Become empowered to share your knowledge and insight alongside your fellow students.

In this specialization, you will learn:

  • How to use data analytics tools to model, select, prepare, analyze, interpret, evaluate and present clinical and operational data to improve healthcare outcomes
  • An overview of the relationship among the primary provider, payer, service, and support sectors in the American healthcare industry
  • The impact of constricting reimbursement on the healthcare industry, as well as an examination of recent healthcare legislation and regulation
