The Tuck School of Business has broken from its traditional stance of teaching just one degree programme - the full-time MBA - by launching a degree in healthcare delivery. The programme will be taught jointly by Tuck and the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice.
It will be the first time that Tuck or Dartmouth College have designed a hybrid programme that includes online learning. However, even though the programme blends both online and face-to-face learning, there will be just 30 students on the programme. Dean Paul Danos says Tuck specialises in “high access, small scale” teaching.
The 18-month Master of Health Care Delivery Science is intended to improve healthcare delivery by achieving better outcomes for the same or lower costs. The programme is intended for clinical staff and administrators in the health system as well as managers in insurance, the military and others. The programme will have three components: core courses; personal leadership development; and an action-learning project.
Tuck, based in Hanover, New Hampshire and part of the Ivy League Dartmouth College, is one of the few top US business schools that has focused solely on the MBA degree.
