MBA Experience 

The MBA with Health Care concentration (specialization) was created as a means to address the changing face of health care as a business. Combined with the general MBA program, students are led by health care specific courses, projects, and internships. Focus is given on key topics driving the health care industry. Successful completion of the program prepares students for careers in the health care, biotechnology, life science, and managed care industries.

Enrollment is open to students in the Full-Time, Professional, or Executive MBA program.


During the first year, students will enroll in the core classes offered in the Full-Time, Professional, or Executive MBA program. During the second year, students will enroll in health care elective courses. Course material is continually reviewed for relevancy in the current market climate and reflects health care specific topics in operations, cost, quality, finance, information technology, marketing, and strategy. 

Full List of Health Care Classes


As a supplement to the class room practicum, health care specific activities are available as well.

Those seeking real-world experience are given the opportunity to participate in several large-scale projects with both local and international organizations. These ventures not only allow students to showcase their business acumen but help in improving the health care system.

In addition, the Biotechnology and Health Care Club provides many lunch speaker sessions, alumni events, and career services support.


The health care program provides students with opportunities to learn from and collaborate with researchers and innovators at the cutting edge of health care.

Representing a combination of distinguished academic researchers, health care practitioners and business leaders, Jones Graduate School faculty work closely with students to address this rapidly growing industry from strategic, economic, ethical and operational perspectives.
