New York, New York – June 26, 2023 — Emeritus, the global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable to individuals, companies, and governments around the world, today announced its partnership with Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. Together, they will launch a co-created immersive business program with Emeritus Healthcare, designed to close critical skills gaps across the healthcare continuum. The collaboration will allow Johns Hopkins Carey Business School to amplify its mission to help shape leaders who seize opportunities to create lasting commercial and societal value, with Emeritus delivering global reach and a depth of experience in online education.
Amid continued economic turbulence and the global health care worker shortage, the course, “Business of Health Care: Driving Impact and Transformation,” provides the next generation of healthcare professionals with real-world expertise and evidence-based research to improve outcomes across health organizations. Designed to support healthcare leaders in navigating a highly fluctuating work environment, the course arms learners with effective leadership skills, business knowledge, and a well-informed perspective on the most pressing challenges impacting today’s global health sector.
Led by expert faculty members from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, the program takes a hands-on approach with knowledge checks, graded activities, case studies and simulations to help participants instill their learnings into practice. Curriculum content spans across three main critical pillars:
- Building Leadership Skills: With sections that focus on self-development, inclusive leadership and cultures of resilience – students will build skills around team management and decision-making to support modern health care workforces.
- Understanding Business Functions: Students will strengthen their understanding of core business functions like operations management, budgeting, and strategy to support closer engagements and collaboration with C-Suite and other high-level business leaders.
- Current and Emerging Trends in Health Care: Drawing upon real-world experiences, students will learn practice techniques around applying AI, automation, and technology to improve health equity across patient populations.
“Health care organizations are relying on senior leadership more than ever before to guide their workforce through ongoing economic uncertainty,” said Alexander J. Triantis, Dean of Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. “Carey and Emeritus both have innovative approaches to executive education, and Carey adds the unparalleled advantage of Hopkins’ expertise in health. This new program brings all of this together for today’s emerging leaders to put their learnings to practice.”
Building on Emeritus’ trusted learning and development partnerships with some of the top employers in health care — including the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Aveanna Healthcare and SCL Health — Emeritus Healthcare’s courses provide solutions for both clinical and industry needs. Beyond hospitals and health systems, Emeritus Healthcare’s business and leadership development curriculum addresses broader workforce challenges faced by pharmaceuticals, medical device companies, insurers and beyond.
“There is a growing sense of urgency for health care leadership teams to assess and adapt to new economic circumstances quickly – all while continuing to improve access, quality and health outcomes.” said Ranil Herath, President of Emeritus Healthcare. “As expectations rise and workplace challenges evolve – leadership training is no longer considered a nice-to-have, but is an essential need to best meet the demands of today’s global health system. Through our partnership with Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, we’re continuing to democratize access to high quality business of health education and help the next generation of health care executives achieve sustainable transformation across their organizations.”
