Master the business of healthcare
Today’s healthcare landscape is complex: A highly-regulated industry. Pandemics. Drug pricing. Good (and bad) actors. But with challenges come opportunities to create and capture value.
Led by healthcare economist Professor Craig Garthwaite, the HCAK program combines the foundational training of an MBA with a focus on the business of healthcare that is necessary for long-term success as a leader.
Who we are
Foundational classes, such as Healthcare Strategy, blend fundamental managerial skills with deep industry exposure. Advanced classes, such as Value Creation and Capture in Healthcare or Pharmaceutical Strategy, apply concepts learned to real-world challenges that you'll face. As a capstone to the HCAK pathway, you'll hone your skills with either an experiential or in-the-field course, such as Healthcare Strategy Consulting Lab or Medical Technology Financing and Commercialization.
Additionally, Kellogg offers an MBA program in partnership with the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, as well as opportunities for residents, fellows and attending physicians at Northwestern Medicine and other hospitals around the country to earn their MD-MBA as part of their medical training.
