Steps to Get Started—Registration Closes October 3
Email Karen Peters or call 781-239-6303 to express interest in joining this cohort.
If space is available and qualifications are met, a $100 nonrefundable registration fee is required. (Books and transportation to Babson’s main campus in Wellesley, Massachusetts, are not included in fee.)
Throughout the Health Care Ecosystem: Competition and Strategic Choice course, you’ll explore the complex and rapidly changing health care 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.
