USF offers new COBHA programming

The University of St. Francis Provost’s Office has approved a new management concentration within the university’s newly revised MBA program. Effective this spring, the College of Business & Health Administration (COBHA) will offer the opportunity for candidates in the management concentration to take 12 credit hours of programming from any of the other seven existing MBA concentrations in order to focus their program based on their professional needs. Existing MBA concentrations include Accounting, Business Analytics, Finance, Health Administration, Human Resource Management, Logistics and Training and Development.

Said COBHA Dean Chris Clott, “We updated our MBA to give our students the opportunity to customize their academic experience, in order to fit the needs of their chosen industry or desired career path. The University of St. Francis MBA is flexible, with online or onsite programming, and the curriculum is relevant to the changing dynamics of the current business environment.”

COBHA currently offers programs for undergraduate, transfer and graduate students. The college is divided into four key programmatic areas: The School of Business, The School of Health Administration, The School of Professional Studies and the Computer Science Department. COBHA offers cutting-edge business education within the Chicago metropolitan area and beyond to help its students succeed in today’s highly competitive marketplace. With expert faculty, unrivaled undergraduate internship opportunities and undergraduate and graduate programs in areas such as entrepreneurship, computer science, health care management, transportation and logistics, and business analytics, COBHA prepares students for challenging and interesting careers within the context of the Franciscan mission where respect, service, integrity and compassion are emphasized.
