PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

A MASTER DEGREE THAT PREPARES YOU TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

The Master of Science in Healthcare Management (MS-HCM) program at MUST University has been designed to provide working Healthcare professionals with the knowledge, skill sets, and abilities needed to be effective Healthcare administrators and managers.

Healthcare delivery is undergoing rapid growth and change in the United States and around the world, a change that has accelerated in the 21st century. As a result, the responsibilities of healthcare administrators and managers are continuously being redefined. In this dynamic environment, organizations must manage for continuous improvement and maintain flexibility to respond to the latest challenges. This underscores the constant need for healthcare professionals to keep pace with new knowledge and gain new skills.

The MS-HCM program at MUST University seeks to develop professionals who understand how to manage non-profit, for-profit, and voluntary Healthcare organizations in effective and innovative ways and who can help Healthcare organizations successfully meet the challenges of a rapidly changing environment. Students in the MS-HCM program acquire the analytical skills needed to explore new models of healthcare delivery and organizational design. They also develop the leadership skills needed to discover and implement creative solutions to problems in the current Healthcare system.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

The Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLA), a consortium of major professional Healthcare associations, has identified five competency domains in which all Healthcare administrators and managers should have proficiency for workplace effectiveness: communication and relationship management, leadership, professionalism, knowledge of the Healthcare environment, and business skills and knowledge. The MS-HCA program has adopted these five competency domains as its program learning outcomes. Therefore, students who graduate with a Master of Science in Healthcare Management from MUST University will be able to:

  • Communicate clearly and concisely with internal and external customers, to establish and maintain relationships, and to facilitate constructive interactions with individuals and groups.

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the Healthcare system and the environment in which Healthcare managers and providers function.
  • Apply business principles to the Healthcare environment; basic business principles include financial management, human resource management, organizational dynamics and governance, strategic planning and marketing, information management, risk management, and quality improvement.
