Best schools in the US for Healthcare concentration MBA program


cinike

Hi

I am interested in going into the healthcare industry (insurance, hospital) and I am in the NY area.
I am looking for an MBA program with a healthcare concentration that also has a good network to be able to land a good job after I graduate.
I have a lot of work experience (over 20 yrs) including healthcare (but only working in a physician's office for the past 7 yrs).

Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks!

Agree with Ayon. With Rutgers, you have a BW-ranked MBA program, in the NYC area, with a concentration in healthcare.

But since you already have a background in healthcare, I'm not sure you absolutely need to do a specialized MBA. Perhaps if you did a general program at a strong school - Columbia or NYU, for example - you'd have better career growth.

Zicklin also has an EMBA in Healthcare that might suit you as well. They're looking for people who a good amount of managerial experience, especially in healthcare.
