Emeritus, the global leader in making high-quality education accessible and affordable to individuals, companies, and governments worldwide, has announced its partnership with Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
The collaboration aims to launch a co-created immersive business program with Emeritus Healthcare to close critical skills gaps across the healthcare continuum. It 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. Emeritus delivers global reach and a depth of experience in online education.
The four-month program will train healthcare professionals in team management and decision-making, operations and supply chain management, and budgeting. It will also cover artificial intelligence and automation to allow healthcare leaders to address health equity in patient populations.
Speaking on the partnership, Dean of Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, Alexander J. Triantis, said:
Healthcare organizations are relying on senior leadership more than ever before to guide their workforce through ongoing economic uncertainty. Carey and Emeritus 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.
The program is led by expert faculty members from the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School. It takes a hands-on approach with knowledge checks, graded activities, case studies and simulations to help participants instil their learnings into practice. Curriculum content spans 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 healthcare 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.
Building on Emeritus’ trusted learning and development partnerships with some of the top employers in health care — including the US Department of Health and Human Services, Aveanna Healthcare, and SCL Health — Emeritus Healthcare’s courses provide solutions for 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.
Ranil Herath, President of Emeritus Healthcare, added:
There is a growing sense of urgency for healthcare leadership teams to assess and adapt to new economic circumstances quickly – all while continuing to improve access, quality and health outcomes. As expectations rise and workplace challenges evolve, leadership training is no longer considered nice. Still, it is an essential need best to 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 health education businesses and help the next generation of healthcare executives achieve sustainable transformation across their organizations.
To address health equity, the program will provide training on building and managing diverse healthcare teams, as well as provide motivation tips. The curriculum will also offer techniques for making healthcare equitable and accessible.
