Healthcare is an industry that impacts everyone. Strong leaders are needed in healthcare, from the smallest clinic to the largest health services corporations. Healthcare leaders across the spectrum of care need to know role of costs, quality, and access to services.

Effective management and innovation in a variety of healthcare settings is vital to meet the needs of patients, including the involvement of insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, managed care programs, and other organizations within the health care industry.
