Helzberg School of Management

Since June 2001, Rockhurst has provided its Master of Business Administration as a featured component in a DO/MBA Dual Degree Program offered with Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences (KCUMB). The MBA in Health Care Leadership is designed to complement KCUMB students’ medical education by helping develop physician-managers of competence and conscience, with the business management skills necessary to provide quality holistic care in a dynamic health care environment.

KCUMB students are accepted into the DO/MBA Dual Degree Program during their first year of medical school. Over the next three years they take 36 hours of prerequisite and MBA coursework, with the first few semesters being on campus and the remaining hours being optional for on campus or online. Prospective KCUMB dual degree students are encouraged to contact the Health Care Leadership program at (816) 501-3448 for more information.

DO/MBA students complete their coursework as a cohort. However, on a space-available basis, other Kansas City healthcare professionals enrolled in the evening MBA program may elect to take Health Care Leadership MBA courses with KCUMB medical students toward receipt of a Rockhurst MBA with a focus in Health Care Leadership. See Focus Areas for more information.
