MBA in Healthcare Management at Clarkson University


[MAN]: Healthcare MBA is
an MBA degree. It’s an MBA curriculum applied
to the healthcare industry. So, what that means is that we
have a business focus on managing a healthcare enterprise. So, we have a program
that’s 16 courses long. By course, you can decide whether
you want the course online or in class. With our our program, it’s
the same curriculum — the same professors
teach in both formats. You don’t get a different set of faculty
teaching online versus in class. So, it’s the same set of information,
the same classes, that you’re going to get from
all the professors. It’s just the different delivery formats. [WOMAN]: It was great working while in the
program because every night that I went to class, I had work-related things that
I could apply to material. Similarly, the next day when
I went into work, I could apply terms, applications, theories initially within my current role managing staff. I had so many new strategies
on how to drive change and how to make things, how to lead transformatively rather than
just manage people. And so that has been great. [MAN]: Our faculty are all
people who have experience. We don’t have any faculty who
have just zero practical experience. We’ve all had experience in
industry and healthcare. We’ve all had professional working
business experience doing that. So, every single person that they
will be taking classes from, the full-time faculty as well as
adjuncts and participating faculty, they will recognize, have a deep
experience in the industry, and that pays dividends. Students
know that they’re they’re getting — they’re being taught by people to
know what they’re talking about. [MAN]: There’s a lot of good, valuable experience within
this building of people that have real-life stories and examples. So there’s, I just, I really appreciate
that experience because they just, they can always have a story or something
to help you, and I really learn best with that. [WOMAN]: I think prior to
starting the program, I had some innate ability to lead ideas
and maybe some ability to lead people. I think I would have really struggled in my
current job role if I wasn’t in the program Managing staff because being able to reach out to
professors and kind of rack their brains about, this is a situation I have with an employee,
this is a situation that I have with a process — How do you think I should
move the needle on this? And getting some instant feedback and
some mentorship has been really helpful. Different things I’ve picked up in this program,
I’ve applied them in my day to day. It’s been recognized, and I’ve been
rewarded, and it’s felt really good. [MAN]: I just think it has a very nice community
feel, and I feel like the tight-knit community, that everyone is very helpful here,
and I really like that in my education experience, I can literally go up to anyone,
they’re going to know who I am here.
