South Carolina State's School of Business will offer its first Healthcare Management MBA program, beginning this year.
The Healthcare Management concentration in the MBA program, which is accredited by AACSB International, will be offered at the Lowcountry Graduate Center in North Charleston.
Designed with busy professionals in mind, officials said, the classes will be held in the evenings and on weekends, integrating interactive online delivery systems with personal, face-to-face class time. According to a 2014 study by the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce, the medical and health care sector is adding nearly 1,000 new jobs each year in the Lowcountry.
This program will also provide specialized knowledge in health care policy, law and ethics, organizational behavior, human resource management, quality assessment and the structure of the healthcare delivery system.
