OVERVIEW

Turn problems into opportunities

The dual-degree MSN Healthcare Organizational Leadership/MBA degree offered through the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and Carey Business School prepare graduates who are exceptional at patient care and safety as well as effecting change at the health care leadership and corporate levels. With an MSN/MBA, you will crunch the data and help set organizational policy and priorities but never forget to account for the patient—and family—at the other end of every decision. You are a nurse who sees various means to only one end: better health care. And you have built the management skills and nurtured the vision to see, work around, and then eliminate roadblocks to success.

Health systems need thoughtful, strong leaders who can blend an understanding for the bottom line—medical, economic, regulatory, ethical—and turn that balancing act into a high-functioning daily routine. It isn’t easy. With an MSN/MBA from Johns Hopkins, you just make it seem so.

The online, part-time Flexible MBA at the Carey Business School approaches business with humanity in mind. The program focuses on real-world skills and business fundamentals viewed through a lens of integrity and ethics. Students and graduates come from a wide variety of industries with a goal in common: to nurture their growth into thoughtful, inclusive leaders as well as to find business solutions that support more than just the bottom line.
