MBA Program: Health Systems Management Concentration

Stony Brook's Health Systems Management concentration prepares students for careers in the exciting and tremendously growing field of health care. From industries such as hospitals, insurance and health services, to pharmaceuticals, biotech, and consulting, there is a huge demand for business professionals with health systems acumen. This concentration will provide students with knowledge in health management, regulations, delivery systems and various industry segments that span the health systems of the 21st century. Courses in this concentration are offered in collaboration with Stony Brook's School of Health Technology and Management and the College of Business. Two health systems options are available to MBA students. Students may concentration in health systems management, taking four electives in the health systems curriculum; or students may pursue an Advanced Graduate Certificate Program in Health Care Management. The latter is a more comprehensive program, benefitting students' further understanding of health care management.
