Online Learning That Complements Your Lifestyle

The online learning experience at Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) offers extraordinary flexibility for working professionals, all while keeping you connected with your faculty and peers through an easy-to-navigate, engaging learning management system.

A Rigorous But Flexible Learning Experience

Our online MBA in healthcare management is a high-touch program that supports both your learning and your lifestyle. In addition to a 50/50 blend of self-paced coursework and face-to-face virtual classes, you’ll enjoy experiential learning through in-person residencies. Take advantage of discussion boards and live study sessions to collaborate with peers from all around the country and use the online office hours to get to know our knowledgeable, award-winning faculty.

Asynchronous Learning

Outside of real-time, virtual classroom experiences, you’ll complete self-paced classwork—or asynchronous learning modules—each week in preparation for the live classes. The learning modules are relevant, high-quality, studio-produced video content and graphics that you can complete on your own time as your schedule allows—offering you complete flexibility. You can access the learning modules through the Canvas Learning Management System and review them as often as you’d like.

Synchronous Learning

During live, virtual, face-to-face classes, you’ll have the opportunity to collaborate with your faculty and peers and participate in meaningful discourse in a supportive and engaging learning environment. Live chat and presentation features allow you to ask questions, share insights and get feedback in real time. Online office hours, peer networking, discussion boards and group work are also available to you in this real-time format.

Residency Program

Our residency program is a unique component of our online MBA program. In collaboration with Cleveland Clinic, University Hospitals, MetroHealth, and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, you’ll have the opportunity to explore differences in culture, organization and operations among these major health systems. You’ll learn practical knowledge and immediately applicable skills, take part in networking events and enjoy scheduled social time with your peers from all around the country.
