General University Information
Widener University is a private, coeducational university located in Chester, Pennsylvania. Its main campus sits on 108 acres (.44 km²), just 14 miles (23 km) southwest of Philadelphia.

Health care is one of the largest and fastest growing industries in the U.S. It accounts for 16 percent of GDP, employs more than 13 million people, and for the next ten years will generate more jobs than any other industry. With growth comes the challenge of managing costs, retaining staff, and providing high quality care to an aging population.
Now more than ever, health care organizations need competent leaders — people who can position their firm to succeed in a competitive market, design systems to deliver cost-effective care, and build a high- performing workforce. And the place to get these skills is the Healthcare MBA at Widener. We are accredited by AACSB and CAHME. Our graduates occupy leadership positions in every major health care firm in the Greater Philadelphia region.
