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 48 hours of prerequisite and MBA coursework on the Rockhurst University campus, and complete the final hours of their MBA on-line during the last nine months of medical school. Dual Degree students receive both a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree and a Rockhurst University MBA diploma. Prospective KCUMB dual degree students are encouraged to contact the Health Care Leadership program director at (816) 501-3448 for more information.

DO/MBA students complete their MBA 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.
