Master of Business Administration with Health Administration Concentration

The Master of Business Administration with Health Administration concentration is designed for students who would like an MBA but are interested in the field of Health Administration. The program allows students to examine, through the guidance of experienced faculty, the field of Health Administration. The courses provide a focused study of issues within the complex world of healthcare. Students who desire to pursue a MBA may already know the field they intend to work in, and will benefit from the opportunity to add a concentration to the core MBA. Note, these concentrations are only available online.

The Master of Business Administration program at Belhaven University is truly a blend of the sophisticated academic world, the practical and technologically dependent career world, and the eternal world of Christian faith. Its enabling thrust is to develop in its students that rare level of discernment that is so much in demand, both globally and locally, and to give leadership and direction to many in the secular world who lack an ethical foundation from which to operate.

The above qualities can best be developed in the M.B.A. students through an intense program of both the appropriate academics advocated and the verity of validating values to which the College, the Division of Business Administration, and each faculty member are totally committed.

Classes are offered one night per week. The format is a concentrated continuous approach. Students are required to participate in periodic learning team activities which are designed to enhance the learning process and the development of problem-solving skills. See the Objectives of the Master of Business Administration Program.
