Modern Healthcare Names FIU Healthcare MBA to List of Nation’s Top Business Programs for Physicians

Florida International University’s Healthcare MBA program has been ranked by Modern Healthcare in its 2013 listing of Top Business Graduate Schools for Physician-Executives. It is the first time that the College of Business program has been ranked in this widely-read healthcare industry publication.
“We are so proud that after only three years, FIU’s Healthcare MBA has been included in this list of prestigious programs, some of which have been educating physicians for decades,” said Nancy Borkowski, executive director of graduate healthcare management programs at FIU’s College of Business. “I hope it will give South Florida’s physician community greater awareness of how FIU can add value to their careers and practices.”
Criteria for the Modern Healthcare listing include length of program, number of days on campus, cost of program, age of program and total graduates. FIU’s program was ranked 34th out of 37 programs listed.
Students in FIU’s Healthcare MBA program include internationally-trained physicians seeking administrative roles in the U.S. healthcare market, as well as physicians, pharmacists, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, and other clinicians seeking to fully engage in decision-making roles within healthcare settings. The Saturday-only, 18-month hybrid program brings practical application of theories and concepts to industry professionals. In addition to classes at FIU Downtown on Brickell in Miami and FIU's Broward Center in Miramar, the program is now offered ONLINE, starting Fall 2013.
The program is part of a broad focus on health care at the College of Business, which also offers a Master of Science in Health Informatics and Management Systems, a Saturday-only 12-month program at FIU Downtown on Brickell. The College’s 2013 Americas Venture Capital Conference, scheduled for December 11-12 in Miami, will spotlight healthcare and health services ventures.
