Respecting your time
The program consists of intensive on-campus sessions held for one week every July and January on the Denver campus and computer-based instruction during the off-campus sessions.
This degree program draws faculty from 17 accredited health administration programs that are part of the Network for Health Care Management.
Drawing on this exceptionally broad resource base, the program offers you an educational environment impossible for a single institution to produce.
Faculty members are selected on the basis of how their backgrounds and experiences add to the experience of the health care professionals in the executive program.
After completing the executive program, students earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree with a major in health administration from the University of Colorado Denver.
A Student’s View
I was selected CEO from a nationwide search of more than 200 applicants. The executive program at CU Denver is clearly what opened the door and made this opportunity a possibility. Without the executive program I would not have the confidence, skills, and the prerequisite degree. Taking the executive program at CU Denver has proved to be one of my best decisions.
