As the healthcare sector grows and the landscape continues to change, staffs are being asked to do more. Many struggle to adapt, and others rely on traditional approaches which often are not sustainable. Faculty research in healthcare finance and economics means students in the Master of Science in Management-Healthcare (MSM-Healthcare) program can learn about crucial contemporary issues directly from experts in the field, while also gaining a solid background in business fundamentals. The Case Western Reserve University family also includes top-ranked schools of medicine and nursing and a highly respected dental school, reflecting our university-wide prioritization of advancing the healthcare field.
Furthermore, the university's location at the heart of Cleveland's University Circle district puts us within a few minutes of three major medical systems: Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center. These institutions are complemented by the MetroHealth system and the new Global Center for Health Innovation located next door to the Cleveland Convention Center downtown. Cleveland is the ideal place to prepare for an exciting career in the healthcare sector.
