An Online Healthcare Program with a Skills-Based Curriculum

The input of healthcare employers, who have a demand for employees skilled in data analysis and modeling, led to the development of our MS in Healthcare Data Analytics program. The program is online and provides you with the skills to acquire, interpret and communicate healthcare data to shape the direction of the healthcare industry. As a graduate, you will be prepared to take positions in healthcare organizations that require you to analyze high volumes of clinical, administrative and financial data. Our graduates establish highly visible and successful careers in hospitals, health systems, health insurance companies, medical practices, technology and consulting firms, pharmaceutical and medical device companies and healthcare policy companies.

Scholarships

Merit-Based Graduate Business Program Scholarships

All students applying for Reh School of Business graduate programs will automatically be considered for merit-based scholarships and need not fill out a separate scholarship form. As long as funds are available, scholarships are given based on academic achievement (GPA) and GMAT (or equivalent) results.* Additional consideration may also be given based upon the overall merits of an application.

There are four award levels associated with Reh School of Business programs. These guaranteed levels range between at least 15% and up to at least a 75% tuition discount**, based upon the overall merits of a candidate’s application. Awards are based on a percentage of the total cost of the specific program to which you are applying.***

Award Levels

*Candidates who have the GMAT (or equivalent) requirement waived as part of their application may still be considered for a merit-based scholarship. Levels will be based upon overall merits of the application, with a minimum award of at least 15%.
**Scholarship awards are for the full duration of enrollment in the program of study, and actual awards each semester are prorated based on credits pursued.
