Healthcare, one of the world’s fastest-growing industry sectors, requires knowledgeable, compassionate and inspired leaders to navigate this dynamic landscape and ultimately improve the health and well being of the people in our communities.
This is why Oregon Health & Science University and Portland State University have partnered to offer The Healthcare MBA, a transformative program that delivers a comprehensive and leadership-focused business curriculum specifically focused on the unique needs, conditions and challenges of the healthcare industry.
The Healthcare MBA’s format was designed to offer maximum flexibility and convenience for busy professionals who aspire to manage their own medical practice, advance their career or lead change within their organization.
The Healthcare MBA is guided by the two following key ideas:
- The Institute of Medicine’s six criteria for quality healthcare: safe, effective, patient-centered, timely, efficient and equitable.To improve the health of the population

Designed for busy professionals, The Healthcare MBA is offered part-time to accommodate students balancing jobs, family and other commitments. This program enables students from around the region to gain access to OHSU and PSU's world-renowned faculty and innovative curriculum.
A hybrid format of both online and on-campus classes is designed to offer maximum convenience, flexibility and opportunities to collaborate and network with cohort peers and faculty.
This online program allows students to earn a specialized masters degree within 33 months by following this schedule.
