Executive MBA in Healthcare Administration


WhyZicklin? Teamwork – “The program is structured as a cohort. I really enjoy working in groups so the strong emphasis on teamwork had me sold on the Executive MBA at the Zicklin School of Business,” says financier turned healthcare administrator Jonathan Rivera.


Dentist Jemima Louis chose Zicklin’s Executive MBA in Healthcare Administration program to be able to rise in the ranks at her Bronx hospital. Besides leadership and team management skills, she’s gained “a different way of thinking.”
