The MSHCT degree program is designed for students with professional experience across the health care sector.

All applicants will be required to meet the Graduate School’s general requirements for admission. The Admissions Committee may consider waiving the GMAT/GRE requirement in the MS in Health Care Transformation program when one of the following conditions is met: (1) five years of professional experience, (2) an advanced degree, or (3) an expired GMAT/GRE. Upon admission to the program, students must pay a nonrefundable $2,000 enrollment deposit to indicate that they accept the offer of admission. The deposit is applied to the payment of tuition when the student enrolls.
