Hybrid Class Format


Designed for busy working professionals, The Healthcare MBA is offered part-time to accommodate students balancing jobs, families and other commitments.

Our hybrid model (online and in-person) provides students the flexibility to complete an MBA and still work full-time.

Hybrid Format:

  • Eighty percent of the classroom interaction is completed through online learning.
  • Twenty percent of the classroom interaction is completed in-person.
    • In-person classes (Face-to-Face sessions) take place two Fridays and Saturdays per term. Classes are held at Oregon Health & Science University.
