Cornell University launches new joint MBA/Master of Science

The Johnson Graduate School of Management will offer one half of the program focused on US healthcare

From fall 2017 Cornell University's Johnson Graduate School of Management will offer an Executive MBA with a joint Master of Science from Weill Cornell Medicine.

The dual two-year Executive MBA/M.S. Healthcare Leadership program is designed for graduates working in the US healthcare industry, preparing them to bring innovation to their workplaces.

According to the university's website: "...the program will educate leaders of academic medical centers, community hospitals, large group multi-specialty or single-specialty practices, health insurers, health care consultants, pharmaceutical professionals and health care innovators, among others."

Students will meet for residential weeks two times in each of the two-years of the program, in New York each spring and on Cornell’s Ithaca campus in the summer.

Applications for the new dual program will be accepted from October 2016 for the program starting fall 2017.

More information is available on the program's website.
