Keuka, Clarkson team up to offer Healthcare MBA

Keuka College and Clarkson University are partnering on a program that will create much-needed healthcare managers

KEUKA PARK — Keuka College’s newest educational partnership creates a pipeline to the growing and rewarding field of healthcare management.

The college finalized an agreement this month that will smooth the path for Keuka College graduates to enter Clarkson University’s Healthcare Master of Business Administration Program.

Graduates will enter a field that is both growing and lucrative. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates a 32% growth in medical and health services manager jobs over the next eight years. Just as impressive, the median salary in the field tops $100,000 a year.

“This degree is a natural extension to our existing Health Sciences and Community Health & Wellness programs,” explained Dr. Chris Alterio, founding dean of Keuka College’s School of Health and Human Services. “It provides for graduate study that will lead to greater opportunities for employment.”

The David D. Reh School of Business at Clarkson University’s Capital Region Campus in Schenectady is where on-campus courses in the MBA in Healthcare Management program are held.

Clarkson’s MBA in Healthcare Management program, which is offered online or at the university’s Capital Region Campus in Schenectady, places nearly 100% of its graduates in the workforce. It is also one of only 10 programs in the country to offer both AACSB and CAHME accreditation – reflecting the highest standards of educational excellence in both healthcare and business management.

“Clarkson and Keuka have had a long-standing and valued partnership with graduate business programs for years,” said Joshua LaFave, director of Graduate Business Programs in the David D. Reh School of Business at Clarkson. “With the strong academic programs at Keuka College, this partnership was a natural fit. This program will offer a seamless transition from bachelor’s to the MBA in Healthcare Management so that together, Clarkson and Keuka will prepare leaders for the healthcare industry.”
