BJC | BJC employees interested in the critical thinking and analytical skills necessary for an ever-changing health care environment have an opportunity to explore these by pursuing a master of business administration degree (MBA) from Webster University.
More than 275 BJC employees have earned their MBA through the Webster cohort offered in partnership with the BJC Institute for Learning and Development (BILD) over the past 14 years.
Interested BJC employees can now apply for the Webster MBA cohort starting in October.
Geared toward preparing people for managerial positions, the MBA program’s core curriculum draws from several disciplines, including accounting, economics, finance, marketing and statistics. There are also some leadership-related courses like project management and organizational behavior.
The MBA program, which takes about three years to complete, has remained popular among working adults for several reasons. Cohort students get a 48 percent tuition reduction — so, combined with BJC’s tuition reimbursement, it’s a very affordable degree.
In addition, the format of the class works well for working adults. Every class will be on Wednesday nights, so students can plan their schedule around it for the full duration of their degree.
Finally, as a cohort, students work with the same people while completing the program.

MHA cohort also starts in October
Applications are now being accepted for Webster’s master’s degree in health administration program (MHA) offered in partnership with the BJC Institute for Learning and Development (BILD). The eighth MHA cohort will meet one night a week starting in October.
“An MHA is a great degree for those who want to strengthen their knowledge of the health care industry and equip themselves to efficiently and effectively face the challenges of administration,” says Beth Camp, BILD senior learning and development consultant.
Students in the MHA cohort study topics in areas such as health administration law, health care financial management, human resources management and statistics.
The program can be completed in less than three years and is made up of nine-week classes, which meet one night a week. Employees work together in a cohort, where they not only learn from the Webster faculty, but also from one another.
BJC offers tuition reimbursement for benefits-eligible employees to help offset some of the financial challenges, Camp adds.
