Leaders in healthcare are often former providers who have a clinical expertise but no formal business training. With an Executive MBA, healthcare professionals can gain the business expertise, strategic thinking and leadership skills to support their personal and professional goals.

What a healthcare professional says about EMBA
Sanford Melzer, M.D.
Class of 2001
Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning and Business Development
Children’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center
The Executive MBA Program helped me develop a much expanded set of business skills that became a real advantage in my work and allowed me to successfully seek promotion.
Professionally, being in the Program enhanced my understanding of finance and accounting and brought a higher level of rigor to our business planning processes. With these skills, I was able to offer a much more integrated clinical and business management planning and implementation methodology. On a personal level, the Program increased my skills and confidence. It helped me advance professionally, achieve promotion, and opened opportunities for senior management roles at other organizations. I was the only physician in the group and one of the more senior (title and age-wise) people.
