MBA Program Focuses on Health Care Administration

Monday, January 28th, 2013

The School of Business at West Virginia Wesleyan College has announced the addition of a new MBA concentration in Health Care Administration.  In addition, a joint MSN/MBA degree will be offered in cooperation with the Master’s in Nursing Program.

Beginning May 2013, MBA students may specialize in Health Care Administration by completing four courses within the Master’s in Nursing Administration program.  This program will enable MBA students to apply advanced business concepts to the health care industry.  Additional MBA concentrations will be offered by fall 2013.

A joint Master’s of Science in Nursing & Master’s in Business Administration degree will also be available to students beginning fall 2013.  The intended audience for this joint degree will be nursing professionals pursuing a graduate degree with a concentration in nursing administration who also want the business credential.

In order to gain admittance into the joint program, applicants must meet the current admission requirements for both the MBA and MSN programs separately.  The new joint structure is a 48-hour program that allows for a one-third reduction in program completion time in comparison to completing each program separately.
