Graduate Certificate in Medical Management

The graduate certificate, offered through our top-ranked Evening MBA Program, prepares you to successfully manage and improve any healthcare environment by:

  • Providing core business concepts to complement your advanced clinical training
  • Supporting your aspirations to leadership roles
  • Allowing access to a business education with a shorter commitment than a master’s degree
  • Delivering concise, broad learning for business applications

You can complete the graduate certificate in one year and carry those credits into the Evening MBA Program, if that is your ultimate goal.
