The Department of Health Policy and Management (HPM) offers a specialized Master of Public Health in Healthcare Management degree designed to integrate three areas of expertise: management and leadership, health policy, and public health and health systems. It provides students with the management skills of a business school education, but does so in a context that emphasizes the unique nature of the healthcare system.
Students receive the management and policy knowledge needed to be a healthcare leader in a rapidly changing and complex healthcare environment by examining the political, legal, and economic forces that shape the healthcare system, understanding the core principles of public health, and receiving a hands-on immersion into the principles and practices of effective management. Faculty include full-time Columbia professors as well as senior practitioners who are especially adept at relating classroom theory to the realities of the workplace.
HPM offers three distinct Management MPH degree programs: full-time, part-time, and Executive. Learn more about them:
