MBA 780 – Health Care Human Resources & Organizations

2 Credits


Jonathon Halbesleben, Ph.D.

Robert Heintz, M.B.A.


The guiding question for this course is: how can we maximize human resources to improve the quality of health care? A unique feature of this course is its emphasis on complex adaptive systems (CAS). Recognition of CAS principles is critically important for success in health care settings, as health systems fit the notion of complex systems very well. This is emphasized throughout the course, guiding students’ thinking about change, motivation, teams, and other concepts.
