Attend an Open House

Join us on Saturday, March 10th on our Livingston Campus or on Sunday, April 8th on our Newark Campus to learn more about our Healthcare Services Management program.

There’s a science to healthcare and a science to managing its delivery.

Healthcare services management is a growing and changing space with an increased demand for healthcare managers who can improve business and clinical outcomes. As healthcare reform laws through the Affordable Care Act continue to change industry standards and operations, the need becomes even greater.

Our program is designed to hone leadership and develop a data-driven process orientation, helping provider managers improve quality, reduce costs and increase patient satisfaction.

Merging business and healthcare

      This program is a perfect fit for doctors, nurses and other clinicians who have moved, or are moving, from clinical care roles to management and leadership positions, and finding a strong need to be better equipped to handle the management and business side of patient care.

      Our program will empower you to become a confident, strategic leader in hospitals or provider organizations and their extended supply chains, which include pharmaceutical and insurance industries.

      Why a healthcare program at a business school?

      Healthcare organizations faces similar challenges as other service firms in accessibility, quality of service and profitability. Running a solid business is critical to patient care. From this perspective, a business school is the ideal home for a healthcare management program.

      "I choose Rutgers Business School Healthcare Services Management program because Rutgers is a top leading business school, and this program not only combined hospital management, but incorporates the whole healthcare sector."
