Experts in the field of healthcare management

Healthcare at Kellogg (HCAK) is led by a group of renowned professors who are proven experts in the business, economics and policy of healthcare. Together, they conduct research and design courses around the most relevant, challenging topics business leaders and practitioners face in today’s market.

Kellogg’s healthcare MBA is led by professor Craig Garthwaite, who serves as HCAK’s faculty director.

At Kellogg, we understand that, first and foremost, healthcare is a market-based enterprise and leaders must therefore possess all of the fundamental tools of business management. We also understand that market participants must respect the unique features inherent to healthcare that dictate the costs and benefits affecting firms, providers and patients. Therefore, our research and teaching is focused on understanding and communicating the specific ways healthcare firms create and capture value in the market.
