University of Arkansas at Little Rock to Offer a Part-Time MBA in Healthcare

MBA to be delivered in a mix of weekend classes and online learning

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s College of Business (UALR) will begin offering a part-time MBA in healthcare, beginning in 2015.

The MBA will be delivered through a mix of weekend classes and online learning. Face-to-face sessions will take place one Saturday a month, while the rest of the curriculum will be delivered online. The program will take 28 months to complete, in total.

The curriculum is based on UALR's traditional evening MBA program, but with added electives in healthcare. 

The new MBA is set to specifically address the needs of managers in one of the state's biggest industries. A 2012 report by the state found that some of Arkansas' largest employers were health facilities and healthcare providers, including Baptist Health, Sisters of Mercy Health System, and Arkansas Children's Hospital. 

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s College of Business is accredited by AACSB International. Arkansas State University, another AACSB-accredited business school in the state, also offers a concentration in healthcare, as part of its traditional MBA program.

UALR's healthcare MBA is set to launch in January 2015. To apply for the program, interested candidates should have at least three years of work experience and a GMAT or GRE score (although test waivers are available). Those interested can attend one of these "coffee talks" that the school administration is holding in October:

  • Oct. 1, Starbucks, 201 N. University, Little Rock
  • Oct. 2, Andina’s Café & Coffee Roastery, 433 E. 3rd St., Little Rock
  • Oct. 8, Starbucks, 2090 John Harden, Jacksonville
  • Oct. 15, Guillermo’s Gourmet Grounds, 10700 N. Rodney Parham Road, Little Rock
  • Oct. 16, River City Coffee, 2913 Kavanaugh, Little Rock

All coffee talks will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 pm.
