Questrom School of Business – Boston University - Health Sector MBA

Boston University Health Sector Professional Evening MBA Program Structure

The Boston University Health Sector MBA program is designed to combine a strong education in the core functions of health sector management with the flexibility to obtain an enhanced understanding and skill set with the student’s particular areas of interest.

The curriculum provides a more developed approach to:

1.) Build on the functional skills of the core MBA curriculum
2.) Provide targeted understanding of the nature of the health sector, and the application of those basic skills to the sector
3.) Provide even greater flexibility to address specialized interests within the sector, whether health service delivery, life science products, consulting, or any other focused area.


The Health Sector MBA follows the same core curriculum as the full-time MBA, except that Health Sector MBA students must take a total of four Health Sector electives to distinguish their degree. Questrom students can choose to pursue the Health Sector MBA on a full-time or part-time basis, and benefit from professors and other faculty who will teach students about diagnostics, devices, drugs, health sector-based IT, etc. Beyond the classroom Health Sector MBA students participate in clubs, internships, field seminars, case competitions and other experiential courses.

Students also benefit from an extensive Mentoring Program in which they are connected with alumni and other field professionals who offer support and guidance throughout a student’s time in the Health Sector MBA program.
