South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF)
Students in the program can participate in the South Florida Healthcare Executive Forum (SFHEF) annual case competition.
Open to current Healthcare MBA students, business case competitions teach future leaders in healthcare how to translate knowledge into an action plan. Students also learn to incorporate classroom learning with teamwork, interpersonal communication, negotiation , and influence. Analyzing a situation, diagnosing a problem, formulating solutions, presenting a recommendation, and gaining approval from an executive panel are all crucial skillsets required to advance in your career. Attending this case competition will give you the opportunity to face those challenges and develop new talents.
