Course Description The Course is the integrating exercise for the Management curriculum and provides students with the opportunity to experience the challenges of executive leadership and strategic decision-making in a realistic exercise that effectively emulates or simulates the full breadth and complexity of organizational decision-making in a complex, competitive marketplace. Using the HealthSquare Simulation and working in teams of 6-7 members, students will act as the executive leadership of a community hospital participating in a multi-hospital market. As hospital executives, they will be required to analyze the position of their institution and to make all decisions central to the successful management of the hospital, including such elements as service line mix, capacity, investment in quality professional/clinical, systems, etc., patient/payer mix, marketing, staffing, financial structure, and so on. Participation in this complex experiential learning experience is supported by group/team work session, readings, lecture/discussions, and presentations. As indicated above, all students are expected to take an active role in each session; the level of class participation will have a major effect on the quality of the Course.
