RIT health systems management MS program reflects changing health care industry
Rochester Institute of Technology is changing how business leadership in the health systems industry is taught through a hybrid online program that includes immersive workshops and international travel to compare and contrast health care models.
The health systems management MS degree educates health care leaders to navigate a quickly changing field through a curriculum that develops student competency. Projected employment opportunities in the health systems industry will continue to grow in the new decade. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a “much faster than average” employment increase of 18 percent in this sector by 2028.
The graduate program, offered through RIT’s College of Health Sciences and Technology, is designed for working professionals. The practical program focuses on team work, critical thinking and case analysis and can be completed in one to two years. The new curriculum, recently approved by New York state, includes 10 online courses, plus two on-campus workshops and a culminating travel course providing a real-life case study.
