Shidler College of Business launches Distance Learning Executive MBA Health Care Management Program
Alice Li Hagan, Director, Custom Executive programs, Shidler College of Business

To address the complex business challenges of a rapidly changing healthcare system, the University of Hawai'i at Manoa (UH) Shidler College of Business, in consultation with the Hawaii-Pacific Chapter of the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), is launching the Distance Learning Executive MBA Health Care Management Program. The program is enrolling students who aspire to transform individual institutions and influence how the industry functions.

The Distance Learning Executive MBA Health Care Management Program includes Shidler’s unique integrated core curriculum with an in-depth study of the healthcare sector. The twenty-two month program will begin in August 2014 with an intensive five-day residential session consisting of day and evening classes.  The program is delivered as a hybrid format consisting of online and in-person sessions.  This learning approach allows participants to continue working and developing practical expertise with the flexibility of distance learning technology.

Information sessions for the new program offering will be held during April and May. The application deadline is June 1, 2014. Detailed information may be found at

The University of Hawaii at Manoa Shidler College of Business

As the flagship campus of the University of Hawai'i System, the University of Hawai'i at Manoa (UH) celebrated its centennial anniversary in 2007.  Classified as a Carnegie Doctoral/Research University-Extensive institution, the UH offers professional degrees in law, medicine, and architecture.  As one of the most diverse campuses, UH’s special distinction is in its Asia-Pacific orientation enhanced by our strategic location and multicultural heritage, which creates opportunities for international leadership and influence. 

The UH Shidler College of Business was established in 1949 as the College of Business Administration and was renamed in 2006 following a $25 million gift from alumnus Jay H. Shidler.  U.S. News & World Report’s 2014 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” ranked Shidler’s undergraduate program 14th in the International Business specialty area.  As the only AACSB accredited MBA program in Hawaii, the Shidler College of Business equips its graduates with the ability to learn and to lead throughout their professional career.
