The healthcare sector is undergoing rapid, momentous change. The combination of ongoing technological development and far-reaching regulatory change means that no business model can survive without constant revision and rejuvenation. Hospitals, insurers, pharmaceutical companies, investors, start-ups and other organizations all need to compete in a uniquely complex and fast-evolving strategic space. To lead in healthcare, to launch something new, to create value for your stakeholders, you need a fundamental understanding of markets and organizations combined with deep insight into healthcare’s challenges.

Yale’s first-rate business curriculum and depth of knowledge in the sector provide a foundation for your aspirations. You’ll also draw on the full power of Yale University and our network of business graduates in the field, as you gain the elevated perspective to see the big picture that enables you to be a leader.

"The combination of the rigorous Yale MBA and in-depth study of healthcare leadership has been a winning formula for our graduates over the past years as evidenced by the impact they are having across the sector.”
Howard P. Forman, Faculty Director, Healthcare, & Professor of Diagnostic Radiology, Economics, and Management


Alongside the integrated core curriculum, in your first year, you will increase your grasp of big ideas and trends in healthcare by participating in the Colloquium on Healthcare Leadership, a series of candid talks with leaders of hospitals, CEOs of medical device and drug companies, policymakers, and other people shaping the field. In addition, you will build your network and benefit from the perspectives and experiences of classmates from all facets of the industry.

In the second year, you deepen your expertise. You take a slate of advanced business and management courses, and a series of deep explorations of topics in healthcare. These courses are taught by experts from the School of Management and other parts of the university, including the School of Medicine and the School of Public Health. A capstone course structured around major challenges in healthcare will deepen your learning and link back to the essential business skills taught in the core.
