AONE is pleased to be partnering with this esteemed program through Harvard Business School. Details of the program can be found below, and more information is available on the Managing Health Care Delivery (MHCD) website.

Geared toward both clinical and nonclinical executives in health care delivery organizations, MHCD at Harvard Business School is an intensive learning experience that is carefully structured to deepen your understanding of organizational effectiveness.

Going far beyond the traditional debate over health care costs, this timely program examines the critical processes and steps required to achieve superior outcomes and enhance performance within your organization. The program offers an interdisciplinary forum for nurse executives to enhance their performance as an innovative and expert leader shaping health care.

Key objectives of the program

  • Responding to new market forces, payment methods, and consumer expectations
  • Evaluating and creating dynamic and flexible strategies for health care delivery
  • Understanding the management tools and techniques used to design and manage successful organizations
  • Analyzing what leadership is and what successful leaders do
  • Stimulating and capturing future innovation and applying the lessons learned

This leadership development program explores three main concepts: designing your organization from the ground up, managing performance and improving and innovating over time.

Throughout this program, you'll have the opportunity to apply these new concepts in a variety of technology-enhanced activities that are directly relevant to you and your organization.

Course of Study

The curriculum uses classroom discussion, project and case studies and includes exercises and projects in between the face to face sessions. Specific content can be found on Harvard's MHCD website.

Registration Fee

The $25,000 program fee includes everything except transportation to the HBS campus in Boston–all tuition, materials, on-campus accommodations, and meals, even a return shuttle transportation to Boston’s Logan airport at the conclusion of each on-campus module are included. Harvard Business School considers MHCD a “mission program,” designed to attract leaders from not-for-profit health care organizations. This fee represents an approximate 40% discount from the School’s standard executive education rates.
