Concordia Partners with Mitchell Hamline to offer MBA Health Care Compliance Program

Mitchell Hamline School of Law will offer its Health Care Compliance program as part of the MBA degree at Concordia University, St. Paul, under a recent agreement between the two schools.

CSP students choosing the Master of Business Administration-Health Care Compliance (MBA-HCC) emphasis will take the core curriculum (36 credits) of the MBA program at Concordia and the 11-credit Health Care Compliance program through Mitchell Hamline’s Health Law Institute.

Both parts of the program are offered fully online. Students can begin as early as May 2017. Upon completion, students will have an MBA and also be prepared to sit for the Compliance Certification Board’s Certified in Healthcare Compliance exam.

“We are excited to partner with Mitchell Hamline School of Law with this new program,” said Dr. Kevin Hall, dean of the College of Business & Technology at CSP. “What a great opportunity for students to advance their careers into this growing market. We are looking forward to growing this partnership to address community and student needs.”

“It’s rare for MBA students to have the option of embedding a health care compliance emphasis into their business degree. We’re thrilled to partner with Concordia to train future business leaders in the health care space,” said Barbara Colombo, an assistant teaching professor at Mitchell Hamline and director of the Health Care Compliance program.

Demand is growing in the health care sector for professionals who can guide organizations through the increasingly complex maze of laws and regulations. The MBA-HCC emphasis prepares students to lead health care organizations through that regulatory environment and to champion an ethical corporate culture.

The MBA-HCC emphasis is one of four degree options available to students in CSP’s MBA program. It represents the first academic collaboration between Mitchell Hamline and Concordia University.

Mitchell Hamline will continue to offer its Health Care Compliance curriculum as a stand-alone 11-credit certificate and also as part of a Mitchell Hamline law degree.
