What is a Healthcare Executive MBA (EMBA)?
Taught by award-winning faculty at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA), the Healthcare Executive MBA at UTSA extends our Executive Master of Business Administration degree program into the healthcare industry, with the goal of complementing specialized healthcare expertise with general business knowledge and leadership skills. Participants will take general business courses with the full EMBA cohort and break out into smaller groups for healthcare specific courses.
Designed for health professionals, our five-semester (21-month program) starts in August, and features cohort classes and weekend class scheduling. Your learning will weave quantitative, analytical and managerial learning threads throughout the program to advance the skills and knowledge you need to solve the evolving challenges in the business of health. Participants will engage in an integrative team-based project to reinforce classroom learning and will also take part in an international field experience to gain exposure to the growing role of globalization in healthcare.
Also included in the EMBA experience is executive coaching, with the goal of helping participants define their career vision and develop a personal plan to make their vision a reality.
Blending In-Class and Online Learning
The EMBA blends self-paced online modules with in-class sessions. This approach allows you to control when, where and how you learn foundational materials through interactive online modules. It also means your in-class sessions will focus less on lecture, and more on discussion and application.
The EMBA program ranked No. 9 out of 91 programs in CEO Magazine’s 2021 Global MBA Rankings.
Our program is accredited by The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), which places our college in the top five percent of business schools worldwide.
Please note: Due to the format of our program, we are unable to accommodate transfer students and you must be prepared to start in August.
