Physicians Executive MBA

When the practice of medicine becomes the business of medicine

More than ever before, providing patients quality health care is impacted by the business of healthcare. That is why Auburn University created a Physicians Executive MBA 20 years ago to offer doctors expertise in finance, law, strategy, management and leadership. This fully accredited 21-month program was designed with practicing physicians in mind. Lectures are delivered largely online, but short residencies offer a shared learning experience with peers representing diverse specialties from across the country.
