Program Description

As the baby boomer generation enters retirement and demands our attention, so does the growing need for health care professionals. Hospitals and health care facilities are facing new challenges, and require professionals who can provide solutions. NSU gives you a competitive advantage so you can lead in this growing field.

The M.B.A. with a major in Complex Health Systems will expose you to the full continuum of the health care system, including translational research and economic development. You’ll work in experiential learning environments that include the classroom, hospitals, clinics, and research settings. This unique program is the intersection where technology, research, and innovation all meet. Some call it the “business side” of health care, where business solutions help take discoveries on the laboratory bench through the complex journey to the patient’s bedside.

An Advisory Board of health care leaders, researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs developed this program to provide you with a powerful edge. It empowers you to improve patients and stakeholder business solutions as a health care leader or facilitate cutting-edge laboratory findings, medicines, therapies, and device launches as an entrepreneur.

  • MBA core courses are offered online or weeknights with the exception of MGT 5105.
  • Complex Health System classes and MGT 5105 are delivered on alternate Saturdays in a 16-week format.
  • The program may be completed in approximately 24 months.
