Wanted: A New Kind of Leader
The challenges of health care delivery require a new kind of leadership. We will need entrepreneurs and leaders highly skilled in business disciplines and who possess a deep understanding of the health care field.
To begin to foster that leadership, we have recently started several educational initiatives:
- MBA Healthcare Concentration
- Working Professional MBA programs now located in Dallas and Houston medical school complexes
- Executive Development Programs targeting health care systems and providers
- Connecting students to recruiters in the health care field
The McCombs School of Business also has an active and engaged MBA Healthcare Association, which is involved in the creation of programs for the spring symposium, and the Business Healthcare Association (BHA), an undergraduate student organization focusing financial, managerial, and legal aspects of providing healthcare.
