Strategic Issues in Health Care Organizations
College of Business Administration
This course is viewed as a capstone course in the curriculum. In this course you are expected to use those skills and concepts mastered during your education to analyze business problems and suggest possible solutions or options. You will then critically analyze those options and defend your choice as a course of action. It is designed to help you integrate your knowledge gained from many of your other courses. The main subject area of the course is to understand how organizations compete. While not exclusively limited to health care organizations, the primary context in which we will apply strategic management concepts is the health care industry. From time to time, organizations from other industries will be used to illustrate, explore and/or contrast with health care organizations.
