In October the first cohort of students will begin Creighton University Heider College of Business's Executive MBA in Healthcare.
The 18-month program will combine online learning with four, four-day campus-based residencies in Omaha, Nebraska, allowing students to keep up with their work commitments.
the Executive MBA is designed to attract students from across the US and is open to both healthcare professionals - physicians, technicians, therapists - and healthcare executives looking to boost their management skills alongside their existing careers.
Creighton University joins an increasing number of institutions offering advanced business programs focused on the healthcare sector.
Applications are currently open for the first class beginning fall 2017.
