William Woods University is offering West Plains area residents the opportunity to pursue a master of business administration degree with health care management concentration without quitting work.
The program will begin with an orientation at 6 p.m. Feb. 22 at the West Plains Civic Center, 110 St. Louis Street.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact the university's Graduate and Adult Studies program prior to then, but walk-ins will be accepted. Call 800-995-3199 or contact WWU by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 36-hour degree program for full-time working adults is designed to equip the health care management professional with focused skills and knowledge for professional practice.
Blending theory and practice, the program uses a cohort model and on-line classes to make a truly applications-oriented program.
The three on-line courses, offered through the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, include health care law and ethics, health care finance and administration-health care organizations. The on-line courses seem to be beneficial for the full-time professionals.
