Francis Marion University Launches MBA in Healthcare

Classes to be delivered mainly online, with some on-campus sessions

South Carolina's Francis Marion University has announced that it will begin offer an MBA program in Healthcare beginning this fall.

The new "MBA in Healthcare Executive Management" program, or "MBA-HEM," is aimed at those already working in the healthcare field as well as those who aspire to enter it.

In the new program, according to program director Kay Lawrimore-Belanger, “students work closely with faculty to explore the most pressing issues in the field, which includes the financial aspects working professionals in healthcare face each day.”

The MBA-HEM is 30 credits altogether, with 18 from the university's business school and the other 12 taught by faculty members from the university's Master of Science in Nursing program.

The program will be primarily delivered online, with students attending on-campus sessions no more than three times per semester.

Francis Marion University is accredited by AACSB International.
