Healthcare analytics and intelligence is a fast-growing industry with an increased demand for healthcare analytical professionals who can apply various analytical tools to create data-driven solutions for complex problems in the healthcare system. As the population ages and the whole healthcare industry shifts toward value-based care, the need becomes even greater.
Rutgers Business School: Graduate Programs-Newark and New Brunswick's master of science in healthcare analytics and intelligence (M.H.A.I.) degree program will give students the tools, insight, and expertise they need to be a successful analytical professional in the healthcare industry. A multidisciplinary and innovative program, the M.H.A.I. offers a customized, business-oriented, and practice-based curriculum applied to the healthcare services sector. The program is designed for applicants who are data savvy with a strong desire to pursue analytical roles in the healthcare industry.
At just 36 credits, this flexible, hybrid program can be tailored to fit a busy schedule and can be fast-tracked and completed in one year. Practice-based capstone projects give students practical experience to apply what they've learned in classes taught by elite healthcare and analytical scholars--all in one of the most healthcare-dense areas in the United States.
Whether you are transitioning from an engineering/business background or clinical care practitioner into healthcare analytics and consulting, or seek to do so, our program will empower you to become a confident, strategic player in healthcare organizations and their extended supply chains.
The program and its curriculum are also STEM designated, allowing international students qualify for a 36-month OPT to work in the United States on a job related to the field of study during the program or after the graduation.
