You can be a part of USF’s community of MBA program and other students. Among your professors and MBA classmates, you’ll find people of all faiths and backgrounds. Some started out with business degrees or nursing degrees. Some majored in something else and bring healthcare work experience into the MBA program – including doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals who want to add a top MBA school education to their resume.

Why USF for Your MBA Degree?

Accredited. USF has received specialized accreditation for its business programs through the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). Not all MBA programs can say that. Be sure you ask all the MBA schools you’re considering about their accredited status, especially when it comes to an MBA with a healthcare concentration.

Christian. USF is a private Christian University. Choose USF, and you’ll do more than choose an MBA school. You’ll join a true Christian fellowship, with an MBA education and healthcare connections that can help grow your career.

Healthcare Concentration. Opportunities in healthcare are growing for professionals with an MBA with a concentration in healthcare. Get ahead, be a leader and serve your community with your experience, education and values.
