Healthcare Management Pathway

AA to MBA 2+2+1

 

The Healthcare Management Pathway provides students with the knowledge and skills to lead in the quickly expanding health services industry.

The demand for leaders capable of improving the efficiency and quality of these services has never been greater due to a growing population, advances in medical technology, and insurance reform.

Students complete an Associate of Arts degree at MGCCC, then transfer to The W's College of Business & Professional Studies. The Bachelor of Business Administration - Healthcare Management Concentration can be completed entirely online in two years. After completing the bachelor degree, students are encouraged to apply to The W's MBA program, completed online in one year, to take their career to the next level.
