Health Care Management at Olin

Washington University’s Olin Business School announced yesterday that it will offer a major in health care management to meet an increasing demand for trained professionals in the health care industry. The program features at its core the Olin Grand Rounds course, which allows students to gain a deeper understanding of the interplay between business and medicine through case studies and lectures.

Advances in medicine, a steadily increasing average life span, and low birth rates in the United States indicate that older persons will comprise an increasing percentage of the US population. Recently, the market for health care has been growing to accommodate the needs of this aging segment, and investors have noticed (see “Investors look to health field“).

Several other business schools provide health care related course offerings. Harvard Business School, for example, launched its Healthcare Initiative program in 2005. Other notables include Wharton, which offers a Health Care Systems major.
