Distance Learning and Evening Online Classes for Part-time Students and Working Professionals

A leader in distance learning, Quinnipiac is attuned to the special needs of working adults who want to expand their career options with graduate studies. The School of Business' graduate programs are offered in flexible online and on-campus formats for full-time and part-time students.

Chartered Financial Analyst: A Specialized M.B.A. Track Offered by QU's School of Business

The MBA-CFA(R) is a specialized track within the MBA program and targets MBA students whose career choices require more extensive finance training and preparation than the traditional MBA.

Chartered financial analyst (CFA) is the designation of professional excellence within the global investment community. This track requires the same number of credits as the master of business administration degree but offers more finance training. The curriculum emphasizes knowledge necessary to work in asset valuation or portfolio management.

Students who complete this track receive a master of business administration degree and graduate prepared to sit for the first (Level I) of three exams offered by the Chartered Financial Analyst Institute. Students must pass the institute's Level I, Level II and Level III exams and meet all eligibility requirements to become a CFA(R) charter holder.

Courses for the first 28 credits of the MBA-CFA(R) track are the same as the traditional master of business administration degree. Students then take four specialized concentration courses and two finance electives to complete the 46 credits required for the degree. Students interested in this track must notify their adviser prior to completing all the Foundations for Effective Management courses.

M.B.A.'s Supply Chain Management Track Prepares Graduates with High-Level Skills in Systems Management

The M.B.A./SCM Program teaches students how to coordinate the many functions, processes, and enterprises associated with the order-fulfillment cycle. Supply chain management focuses on the planning and management of sourcing and procurement activities, conversion, and logistics management activities.

A key element in supply chain management is the systems management skills of coordinating and collaborating with suppliers, manufacturing, intermediaries, transportation carriers, warehouses and inventory management, third-party service providers, retailers, and customers. Supply chain management focuses on the integration across functions within a firm as well as across enterprise lines.

The 46-credit M.B.A./SCM Program builds on the first 34 core credits of the traditional M.B.A. curriculum with the addition of specialized concentration courses such as Strategic Sourcing and Supply Management; Operations and Supply Chain Management; Transportation Management; and Managing Marketing Channels.

Graduates of the program have the breadth and depth of key skills to function successfully in highly competitive national and international marketplaces and, at the same time, be effective as supply systems management professionals in their companies and successfully manage all stages of the order-fulfillment cycle, from sourcing, manufacturing, and suppliers to warehousing, inventory management, retailers, and delivery to customers.

QU Also Offers Master of Business Administration in Health Care Management Program

Offered online and on campus, QU's Master of Business Administration in Health Care Management (MBA/HCM) program responds to a growing demand in the marketplace for uniquely skilled health care systems managers and administrators.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor's 2008-09 Occupational Outlook Handbook, the job market for medical and health care administrators will increase at a faster pace than other professions, and the most sought-after job candidates will be those with health administration experience coupled with strong business management skills.

Health care systems have never been more complex. Health care managers and administrators must be able to handle the delicate balancing act of improving health care quality and efficiency while controlling costs and meeting the demands for higher levels of accountability from insurance companies and Medicare. Effective health care administrators must be able to oversee the computerization of patient records, understand security and privacy issues, and comply with changing regulations and other legal issues.

QU graduates with an MBA in Health Care Management are uniquely qualified to handle the diverse challenges of their profession with a full set of skills and knowledge to succeed as administrators in all sectors of health care, including hospital administrators, nursing home administrators, and assisted living facilities administrators. They will be in demand as managers and administrators for home health care service companies, physicians' offices, insurance companies, and government agencies.

The 46-credit MBA/HCM curriculum focuses on critical business concepts and practices in accounting, economics, finance, management, and marketing. Courses emphasize indispensable business skills like communications, business ethics, strategic planning, project management, and leadership principles.

Students gain knowledge specific to health care management including a comprehensive understanding of the organization and financing of the American health care system, as well as myriad legal and compliance issues. Classroom lectures are enhanced with case studies, online databases and references, and the opportunity to spend two semesters in a residency program or consulting practicum arrangement in a health care organization.
