The UT Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management is the definitive resource for healthcare management education in North Texas. The Center for Healthcare Leadership and Management (CHLM) facilitates collaboration among the school’s six academic programs in healthcare to offer industry-responsive education in order to prepare and equip industry-ready students.
Nationally, healthcare spending is approaching $3 trillion, representing almost 19 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. In the North Texas region alone, healthcare spending is estimated at $52 billion, and healthcare accounts for almost 700,000 jobs. Hospitals, clinics, research, ambulatory care, post-acute care and fiscal intermediaries are all part of this. As a growing industry, healthcare demands a more purposeful and integrated approach to workforce preparation and education.
The healthcare industry is increasingly complex and demands a well-prepared workforce. The Naveen Jindal School of Management plays a unique role in training the next generation of healthcare leaders to meet local, regional and national demands.
Unlike other educational institutions that provide education predominantly through clinical or allied health professional programs, the Jindal School of Management utilizes its strengths in accounting, administration, finance, marketing and information systems to educate highly qualified personnel.

The EMBA in Healthcare Organization Leadership offers a cohort-based, organization-specific educational opportunity. Large healthcare organizations are able to sponsor an onsite graduate degree for their employees. Educational courses are tailored to fit the unique needs and issues of the sponsoring organization. For example, UT Southwestern and Parkland Memorial Hospital sponsor a 20-student cohort program in which graduate-level educational courses are offered onsite and personalized to fit the unique needs and issues specific to them. The organizations large enough to host this program are also able to determine if outside students are allowed to join the cohort group. Coupled with graduate-level educational offerings and an integrated executive coaching approach, graduates are able to provide real-time experiences, experiential learning and effective solutions.
