Broaden Your Worldview


Gain A Whole New Perspective

Globalization is increasing, and so is the need for health care professionals who understand how business is done in key markets around the world. The international residency is a great opportunity to enrich your global business and cultural knowledge, forge exciting new connections, and gain an international edge.

As part of the Health Care MBA program, you will complete a Global Health Care Innovation course. During this 7 to 10 day residency, you’ll visit hospitals, companies and innovation centers in one or more foreign countries.

The international residency was added to the Health Care MBA in 2017, and has greatly enhanced learning opportunities for students. The residency is designed to help you learn to:

  • Create work environments where innovative ideas can flourish
  • Identify and evaluate new opportunities
  • Transform innovations into profitable businesses
The Health Care MBA program has approximately 90 active students, representing over 50 organizations.
