Healthcare Management Concentration

The Ross Healthcare Management Concentration is perfect for students looking to combine interests in business and healthcare.

The concentration complements the Full-Time MBA curriculum with electives both at Ross and at top-rated schools throughout the university, along with healthcare-related activities outside the classroom. This combination, coupled with support for recruiting in healthcare, gives you the multidisciplinary background to become a true leader in the healthcare industry.

In the concentration, you will take 12 credits of healthcare course work and can complete the requirements within the 57 credits needed for your MBA. If you pursue a healthcare-themed MAP project, you may be approved to earn 3 credits toward the concentration. Participating in healthcare projects through Social Venture Fund can also earn up to 3 credits for the concentration, with approval. 

We suggest you add the concentration in your first year of enrollment and you can complete the MBA program in 2 years. For questions about the concentration, contact an academic advisor at
