are you talking about healthcare specialties / concentrations in an MBA program? or a separate healthcare type program (such as the MHA or MPH) ?

if you are talking about an MBA degree with a focus on healthcare, most top business schools have concentrations in this field. i don't know what the rankings are for these programs, although anecdotally i have read that wharton and duke (fuqua) have 2 of the best healthcare specializations within their MBA programs.

a good way to start would be to go on a few of the top schools' websites, and browse their employment statistics for full time offers. look at quality of recruiters in this field (big pharma, hospitals, etc.) as well as placement stats. if a decent percentage of grads are choosing the pharma/healthcare field, with top pharma and biotech firms recruiting at the school - then this would indicate a fairly strong program.

Shadow - I saw that you turned in your app to CBS in round 2 and were invited to interview. Could you let me know when you turned your app in? I turned mine in early Jan but have not heard back.

Thanks,

Concentration in health care is not offered everywhere, and for that reason, its a bit difficult to find a good listing. However, we recommend that students choose a business school location within the region in which they will seek employment. In this way they can get to know companies and hospitals as well as the legal and social issues unique to particular regions.

Here is a link that may facilitate your search:

Our MBA consultants have a lot of experience with people going into different programs and we offer a free 20 minute MBA evaluation. If you're interested, just send your profile to the email in my sig. Hope this helps!

Two years later but if anyone finds this as I did... maybe it will be helpful.

Try US News & World Report -- they measure and rank schools according to the qualities of the programs, faculty, curriculum, accreditation and how it all comes together as an education experience for the student . I would post a link but they won't let me as a new member. (I felt compelled to add to this)

Also, in my research journey, I was recently recommended the University of Scranton's MHA program --- it's listed on the US News Top Healthcare Management programs (I think it's #46?). Their Master's in Health Administration program is CAHME accredited (which is required for any of you guys in the military and a really great accreditation) and it is competitively priced -- probably the only CAHME program I've found under $1,000/credit hour.

They just launched an online version which I am thinking about pursuing now too. Supposed to be really great!
Good luck!!!

Simon Business School offers an MBA concentration in Healthcare management. They also have a dedicated full-time MS in Healthcare management as well as a dual degree - MBA/MD with the University of Rochester Medical Center. For the keen student, you can do your MBA in one year and then move on to med school.
