Certificate mixes classroom learning with an on-site component

MIT's Sloan School of Management has added Healthcare Certificate option to its MBA program.

New new certificate will tackle emerging needs in the field. To complete the certificate, interested students will need to complete 42 units. Required core courses include "Economics of Healthcare" and "Intro to Healthcare Delivery in the U.S.: Market & System Challenges." A range of elective options includes courses in biotechnology, healthcare ventures, and biomanufacturing, among others.

Additionally, the program will require participation in a "lab" component, where students will get hands-on experience in a health organization.

The certificate in Healthcare is available to MBA candidates, as well as to students in other MIT degree programs, campus-wide.

MIT Sloan also offers a certificate in Sustainability, which is only open to MBA candidates and other Sloan students.

For more information, please see MIT Sloan's press release announcing the launch of the Healthcare Certificate.
