The perfect Rx for a thriving career in healthcare leadership

The Johnson Graduate School of Management and Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, two powerhouses in graduate education, have partnered to create a groundbreaking dual-degree program for professionals in healthcare: the Executive MBA/MS in Healthcare Leadership.

Join a group of healthcare leaders  and learn how to facilitate change and drive innovation—from inside your organizations to the industry at large. You’ll gain the knowledge and experiences you need to lead large organizations, drive national dialogue on policy, implement new models of care, and spearhead technology innovation.

The experience

Located at the brand new Tata Innovation Center on Cornell Tech’s Roosevelt Island campus in NYC, the program’s classroom sessions are part of a buzzing community of technical innovation and multi-disciplinary collaboration. These sessions take place on alternating weekends so you can advance your career—without interrupting it—while also balancing your home life.

The program also includes four residential sessions, which facilitate networking and feature intensive coursework and elective exploration. These sessions alternate between Cornell’s Ithaca campus and the NYC-Metro area.

The result

After two years, you’ll graduate with two Ivy League degrees from Cornell: an MBA and an MS in Healthcare Leadership. Leverage these degrees as your passport to a powerful network of more than 260,000 Cornell alumni worldwide.
