Bethany, OK (PressExposure) December 16, 2009 -- Southern Nazarene University is launching a new online MBA in Health Care (MBA â HC) program, designed to reach professionals who desire to pursue a career in management in a health care organization or are currently working for health care organizations and desire to increase their effectiveness as managers and/or professionals.
The MBA â HC curriculum is uniquely designed to provide skills needed to be successful managers in the health care industry. The program is based on the proven one-night-a-week program currently offered on the main campus in Bethany, and in Del City and Tulsa.
The online MBA â HC offers a combination of the best in general business theory and practice with specific knowledge and skills health care professionals need to lead their organizations effectively. The accelerated online program is a 40-credit hour program that can be completed in 19 months; the programs consists of nine traditional MBA courses (27 credit hours), four MBA â HC courses (12 credit hours) designed specifically to address health care issues and problems, and a seminar, Current Issues in Health Care (1 credit hour). Students will enter and progress through the program with a cohort, taking courses in sequential order and completing the program with the same group within 19 months.
âWith online education growing in popularity and the health care industry expanding, Southern Nazarene University is able to connect with people from various health care related professions across Oklahoma and in other states,â said Jeff Seyfert, Assistant Director of Graduate Studies in Management. âAs with most Health Care professionals, they work long hours and sometimes on the weekends, which makes it difficult to attend a traditional onsite class. Now with an online MBA â Health Care program, students can work from their personal computers anywhere and at any time of the day.â
Start date for the online MBA â Health Care is February 20, 2010. To learn more about this program or RSVP to attend an upcoming information seminar, visit http://www.snu.edu/mba-health-care.
