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 activity outside the classroom. This combination 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, 3 credits of which must be taken in a U-M school other than Ross. You will complete the concentration within the 57 credits required for your MBA.

You can add the concentration in your first year of enrollment and can complete the MBA program in 2 years. For questions about the concentration, contact an academic advisor at MBAProgramOffice@umich.edu.
