The Kellogg School of Management is proud to offer an MBA with an emphasis in healthcare management and economics. Kellogg’s strong experience in general management education, combined with our deep expertise in the biopharmaceutical market, private equity and the reorganization of the healthcare value chain, allows our students to benefit from MBA healthcare programming that provides the foundation for long term success as a healthcare leader.
Kellogg’s innovative Program on Healthcare at Kellogg (HCAK) traces its roots to its founding in 1943 as the first program focusing on the business of health. Since that time, the program has educated healthcare business leaders in all facets of healthcare. Led by Professor Craig Garthwaite, Director of HCAK and healthcare economist, this robust program combines strengths in faculty thought leadership, partnerships, and curriculum to prepare our students interested in healthcare in building their appeal on a growing job market.
Central to the program is a constantly evolving curriculum that combines Kellogg’s foundational management training with innovative healthcare courses taught by leading academics and practitioners. This curriculum is paired with innovative programming the exposes students to business leaders, authors, and journalists that provide unique insights into this changing market.
Students, with and without a healthcare background, leave Kellogg prepared to navigate an increasingly complex set of interconnected stakeholders, including providers, biopharmaceutical firms, health insurers, government agencies, technology startups, venture capital firms and potentially disruptive entrants from outside of the sector.
The Healthcare at Kellogg Alumni Network is designed to promote interaction and engagement among Kellogg alumni and faculty by providing access to Kellogg alumni in the field, industry leaders, events, thought leadership and lifelong learning opportunities.
