Why an MBA and not an MPH or MPA in Healthcare?
Healthcare institutions, both profit and not-for-profit, are under enormous pressure to contain costs and improve the quality of services and products. Of the three degrees, the MBA provides the most rigorous and in depth study of managerial science. Our MBA Program in Healthcare Administration first builds competency in the standard MBA core disciplines. We then show students how to apply this knowledge to the particulars of the healthcare industry. Our students graduate with the intellectual foundation necessary to take on the managerial challenges facing the healthcare industry today and tomorrow.
Where are the classes held?
All classes are held at Baruch College in our new state of the art Vertical Campus, located at 1 Bernard Baruch Way, in Manhattan located on the corner of 25th Street and Lexington Avenue.
Do you have a parking garage at the college?
No, we don't have a garage, but there are some in the neighborhood. Parking is very limited in the immediate neighborhood. The M23 Cross-town bus stops nearby as well as the IRT #6 train. We are a brisk 15- 20-minute walk to Penn Station or Grand Central Station.
I am an International student, and will need an I 20 and student visa to attend, will you prepare them for me?
As a part time program, we are not able to issue immigration documents to students.
Is the GRE/ GMAT ever waived?
We may waive the GRE/GMAT if an applicant possess appropriate quantitative skills (acquired via academic training or professional experience, or our in-house Admissions Test). To see if you qualify for a waiver please email HCA@baruch.cuny.edu
Must I be working full time in Health Care?
No, but over 90 percent of our students work in the healthcare industry. Working in the industry enhances the relevancy of the curriculum and the marketability of the MBA program.
