Peter Hession, MD, MBA
"This EMBA program provided me with the diverse curriculum from experienced professional instructors that I needed to advance my knowledge base and career. The hybrid model was ideal for my busy work schedule, and I would recommend Creighton to anyone interested in healthcare leadership."
Robbe Peetz, MMS, PA-C, MS, MT(ASCP), MBA
"The EMBA at Creighton University is the ideal program for busy professionals looking to increase their business acumen in healthcare settings. The hybrid format allows flexibility to complete coursework in a directed, yet self-paced manner while also engaging face to face twice a year with faculty and members of the cohort.
When considering MBA programs, what also set Creighton apart was their distinguished faculty from across the country. The faculty hail from institutions across the country with executive experience across several aspects of healthcare: critical access, academic medical centers, private practice and for-profit entities. The faculty assessed the needs of the cohort and ensured accessibility to review content and work through problem-based scenarios. They also provided timely and direct feedback. Throughout the program, I began to think differently and be much more prepared for meetings with the executive healthcare team and confident in my ability to deliver a sound, well-thought-out recommendation for future projects.
What surprised me about the Creighton program was the richness of the cohort and ability to network and develop relationships. The Creighton name is familiar across the country and attracts a strong alumni base and individuals seeking a Jesuit education. As such, resources and relationships were at our fingertips to be successful and grow as professionals in our journey."
Pedro Santiago, DMD, MBA
"The EMBA in Healthcare Management provided essential knowledge and tools to become a successful healthcare executive, administrator and entrepreneur. The faculty support and cohort’s dynamic interaction encouraged critical thinking and the application of problem-solving strategies in all disciplines of healthcare management.
Pursuing an EMBA in Healthcare Management at Creighton has been one of the best decisions I have made in my professional career. It has provided critical administrative knowledge and skills not learned in dental school and essential in my current leadership role."
Wilfredo Vega, MD, FACOG, Executive Healthcare Fellowship, 2020
"The Executive Fellowship is an excellent tool for the busy healthcare professional who is looking for a better understanding or professional advancement, regardless of where he or she is on their professional journey within the healthcare system.
A very well-thought-out, planned and structured curriculum, including all the relevant topics and intricacies of our present healthcare system and an outstanding faculty provided for a great learning and personal experience.
The cohort interaction design and diversity provides a great value, with participants sharing professional and personal experiences during topics discussions. I especially appreciated the wide variety of professional career levels of the cohort students, and I believe it provided an excellent opportunity for immediate and future networking possibilities. Wilfredo is slated to graduate from the Executive Healthcare MBA program in 2022."
