Babson Blended Learning: Test It Out

Blended Learning

"The Blended Learning test-it-out course was integral in my decision to apply to Babson. I was strongly considering the program, but I questioned if graduate school would fit into my busy life. This course was a perfect test run that removed all doubts. The online format provided great flexibility, while the in-person sessions allowed for rich dialogue, analysis, and networking. I learned a ton over the seven weeks—lessons that I’m already applying to my day job. Because of this course, I am 100% convinced that Babson’s blended MBA is for me."

—Becky Martins

Course Description

Throughout Health Care Strategy, you’ll explore the complex and rapidly changing healthcare ecosystem; its players; and the dynamic economic, demographic, and political factors that are driving this change. You’ll explore the various components of this system and their roles, including patients, care providers, entities that pay for health care, entities that develop health care, and the government. We’ll examine how these organizations work and how they are changing, and look at the challenges and opportunities for the system, and organizations within the system.
