Baylor’s Robbins Institute for Health Policy and Leadership Granted Membership into Business School Alliance for Health ManagementNov. 28, 2016
Baylor University’s Robbins Institute for Health Policy and Leadership, in the Hankamer School of Business, has been granted membership into the Business School Alliance for Health Management (BAHM).
BAHM is a collaborative nonprofit organization, composed of business schools committed to the belief that management education, applied to the challenges of healthcare delivery and health care innovation, plays a special role in creating new and important solutions. Membership is open to health care management programs at top business schools that have shown a commitment to research and teaching (led by research-based faculty), as well as service in the health sector.
“Given the dynamic nature and complexity of our nation’s health care system, the Robbins Institute’s programs are designed to ensure our graduates possess business and management skills along with a dedication to the community in which they serve, said Thomas Haines, M.H.A., associate director of the Robbins Institute for Health Policy and Leadership. “Our focus is aligned precisely with that of BAHM’s and we are excited to join other alliance members in creating new and innovative solutions to the challenges our graduates will face.”
The Robbins Institute oversees and administers the following programs:
- Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) in Healthcare
- Executive M.B.A.-Healthcare (in Dallas and Austin)
- Ph.D. in Health Services Research
- Case Competition in Healthcare Management
The Robbins Institute was founded in May 2011 to engage an interdisciplinary group of scholars in a variety of intellectual activities, including teaching, external programming and health services research. Its programs are built around four pillars: academic excellence, intellectual activity, servant leadership and meaningful engagement.
“The Institute is committed to providing quality academic training, while expanding a commitment to health services research on issues that directly impact the lives of millions of people worldwide,” Haines said.
Currently, the BAHM alliance includes fewer than 20 institutions. Other member institutions include Harvard Business School, Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, Yale School of Management, Vanderbilt University’s Owen School of Business, University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
