The online MBA in Rural Healthcare at The College of St. Scholastica is designed for healthcare professionals at all levels who serve rural communities and recognize the need to manage the emerging challenges and changes in the health care system.

- Exercise critical thinking and high level reasoning through effective oral and written communication skills.
- Identify competing values, behaviors, and assumptions that are relevant to the effective implementation of proposed change initiatives.
