Teamwork and Leadership
Students will develop skills that permit them to function effectively in teams and be given opportunities to experience, understand, and develop their competencies as leaders.
Students will be effective oral and written communicators as leadership and teamwork in business is dependent on developing shared meaning and commitment to action fostered through communication.
Information and Technology Literacy
Students will develop effective information literacy skills and understand how information technology is used to support organizational decision-making.
Students will be sensitive to ethical issues in business, understand the importance of behavior and their responsibilities as business people to uphold ethical principles in their dealings.
Students will effectively use quantitative techniques to describe and analyze business phenomena and help develop solutions to business problems.
Students will effectively use economic, accounting and financial concepts to assess markets, to manage revenues and costs, and to oversee budgets in healthcare organizations.
Knowledge of the Healthcare Environment

Students will have the opportunity to develop a specialized intellectual competence in at least one business discipline to support post degree employment aims.
