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:

Advisory Board

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.

Webcast

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.

  • Coral Andrews, the Regent of the Aloha-Pacific chapter of the ACHE

  • Tanya Peacock, ACHE member and faculty at the Army-Baylor MHA/MBA Program

  • Reg Baker, Executive Vice President, Hawai'i Medical Assurance Association


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.
