Master of Science in Healthcare Services Management

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. And, as healthcare reform laws through the Affordable Care Act continue to change industry standards and operations, the need becomes even greater. 

Rutgers Business School’s Master of Science in Healthcare Services Management (MHSM) will give you the tools, insight and expertise you need to be a successful operational leader in the healthcare provider space. A multidisciplinary and innovative program, the MHSM offers a customized, business-oriented and practice-based MBA curriculum applied to the healthcare services sector.  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. 

At just 36 credits, this flexible, hybrid program can be tailored to fit your busy schedule and can be fast-tracked and completed in one year. Practice-based capstone projects give you practical experience to apply what you’ve learned in classes taught by elite healthcare and management scholars—all in one of the most health-services-dense areas in the United States.

Whether you have transitioned from a clinical care practitioner into management or consulting, or seek to do so, our program will empower you to become a confident, strategic leader in hospitals or provider organizations and their extended supply chains.


Marketplace feedback:

“As health care continues to move away from fee for service to pay for performance, it is critical for both health care providers and administrators to develop expertise in the analytics that identify and track population health outcomes and in the strategic realignment and integration of providers to facilitate the transition to the new model of health care delivery.”
