Why offer a MBA in Healthcare Administration?
Healthcare administrators are integral to the successful management of hospitals, nursing homes, hospice facilities, insurance companies, provider networks and government policy organizations. They are expected to examine business from multiple perspectives, drawn from a cross-section of multidisciplinary expertise.
The MBA in healthcare administration degree plan focuses on building business acumen while also instilling knowledge specific to the healthcare enabling our graduates to achieve success in their careers.
Unlike many healthcare administration MBA programs, the Robbins MBA Healthcare Program requires a seven-month paid Executive Residency with a leading, progressive health organization.
With a residency placement rate of 100%, every student has the opportunity to receive guidance from well-qualified, practicing healthcare executives, apply and test administrative theory in practical work situations and develop leadership skills in an actual healthcare organization.
The mission of the Robbins MBA Healthcare Program is to promote academic excellence, stimulate intellectual activity and encourage community excellence in a Christian environment to improve the health of all segments of society.
