|Health Care Management Executive MBA Program Recruiting and Program Update|
|Alice Li Hagan, Director, Custom Executive programs, Shidler College of Business|
Since we announced our new program in March, the College has received overwhelmingly positive support from the community. Here are some recruiting highlights:
We have formed a 12-member advisory board to help provide guidance to the curriculum and the recruiting effort. The board members consist of executives and leaders from the healthcare community across the State.
Marketing and Recruiting Outreach
In our effort to reach out to prospective candidates for the program and with the sponsorship of some of our advisory board members, we had a series of information sessions at the following organizations:
Tripler Army Medical Center
Hawai'i Medical Association
Kapi'olani Medical Center
Queen’s Medical Center
Straub Medical Center
We presented the new program to all the military education centers across Oahu and attended the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) annual conference.
Three of our program advisory board members were featured on the webcasts of ThinkTech Hawai'i, a non profit organization that raises public awareness about issues that impact the State’s economy and future.

First Cohort in Fall 2014
We anticipate a small cohort for our inaugural program in the Fall with a kickoff residential session from August 21st to 25th at the Turtle Bay Resort in Kahuku. This will be an opportunity for the participants to meet the program faculty and interact with their fellow classmates to begin their journey on this 22-month program.
