Baylor University's Hankamer School of Business, known for its innovative and high quality MBA programs, has introduced a new MBA specialization in healthcare administration, which will be available this fall.

"This new specialization has been added to the Baylor MBA program in response to a growing need in the medical industry for people who can effectively manage complex medical systems," said Dr. Terry Maness, dean of the business school.

The healthcare administration specialization will consist of six courses plus an internship, allowing students to apply classroom skills in progressive medical organizational settings. Field excursions and seminars with leading healthcare executives will assist students in gaining a first-hand introduction to the medical administration environment.

The seven-month internship is tailored to individual student interests and will be located in some of the finest healthcare organizations in Texas, including Houston, Dallas, Waco and San Antonio. Opportunities also exist outside of Texas, including an internship in one of the nation's leading healthcare consulting firms in Washington, D.C.

Other specializations available in the Baylor MBA program include customer relationship management (CRM) and international business. MBA degrees available include the general MBA, MBA in information systems management and MBA in international management.

Baylor's MBA program is rated in the top 20 percent of accredited collegiate business programs in "U.S.News & World Report." The Dallas EMBA is ranked first in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex, 14th in U.S. and 25th in world by "The Financial Times." Baylor's EMBA programs also are rated Tier One by "U.S. News."
