Emerging Issues in the Healthcare Industry
This course, brings high level executives to the classroom to discuss impending challenges in their healthcare institutions. Following their lecture, the speakers dine with a small group of program participants, providing a unique opportunity for you to network with major executives.
This capstone experience challenges you to conceptualize an original idea for a healthcare venture and develop a business plan that will require you to draw upon all the knowledge delivered to you by the program. At the culmination of the project you will pitch your idea to “angel investors” that are current executives in the healthcare industry.
