Rutgers Business School has announced two new masters programs, in healthcare and the business of fashion.
The new Master of Science in Healthcare Services Management is aimed at executives, physicians and managers in the healthcare services industry. The curriculum covers various topics in healthcare, with classes in "US Healthcare Systems & Managed Markets," "Healthcare Operations Analysis," and "Healthcare Services Management," among others.
The program is flexible; full-time students can complete it within two years, and part-time students must finish within three years.
Rutgers' new Master of Science in Business of Fashion promises to help students bridge the gap between creative passion and business acumen in this competitive field.
"In the fashion industry, there seems to be a big disconnect between the business sector and the creative field – there’s a real chasm between the two," Tavy Ronen, the program's director, told Rutgers Today. "We decided it would be great to provide a program for creatives who want to learn how to run a business and for business professionals who want to work in the fashion industry."
The program's curriculum merges business essentials—with classes like "Financial Management" and "Management Skills"—with fashion specific modules such as "The Branding of Fashion" and "Project Management in the Fashion and Beauty Industries."
The Master of Science in Business of Fashion can be completed in one year on a full-time basis or two years on a part-time basis.
Both programs require the GMAT or GRE to apply. Neither program requires work experience, although for the Master of Science in Healthcare Services Management program, "the majority of our students will have clinical work experience prior to entering our program," according to the program's FAQ page.
Both programs are set to launch this fall.
With the new programs, Rutgers adds to its extensive list of speciality masters programs, which cover topics ranging from accounting to information technology and supply chain management.
