TUCSON, Ariz. – Mar. 20, 2018 – The Eller College of Management at the University of Arizona announces the launch of new specialty master’s programs directly addressing the needs of the 4th industrial revolution.

The fully online Master of Healthcare Management, with concentrations in healthcare leadership, healthcare innovation and healthcare informatics, helps physicians, healthcare administrators and future healthcare leaders develop the business skills that are essential for transforming the 21st century healthcare industry.  

Both programs will accept their first cohorts for the fall 2018 semester.
