I’m very excited to share with you something I have been working on for quite some time.

We have all been very busy at the Social Health Institute developing a Mini MBA Certificate Program with our friends at Clemson University. A year in the making, this six-course offering provides a unique approach to deliver thought leadership in the space of digital communication, social media communication and healthcare business management.

The Digital Health Certificate Program is a part of Clemson University’s Mini MBA Certificate Program offered by the Center for Corporate Learning, located downtown Greenville, SC in the One Clemson facility.

The Mini MBA Certificate Program offers business professionals the opportunity to sharpen leadership skills, learn advanced marketing techniques, develop methods for successful project execution, build ROI decision making processes, and devise a successful business strategy.

The Digital Health Mini MBA will be an additional certificate program available for healthcare leadership and professionals seeking educational opportunities in digital communication and social media communications as an integrated approach to innovative healthcare business.

“Partnering with SHI allows Clemson to offer an unparalleled educational experience for healthcare professionals, enabling them to gain practical knowledge of cutting-edge medical technology,” said Gregory Pickett, PhD, senior associate dean for the College of Business and Behavioral Science at Clemson University. “Participants will increase their marketability in the field and patients will ultimately receive a higher level of care as a result of implementing these leading-edge initiatives.”

If anyone comes to mind, please feel free to forward this note their way or send them to for more details. In the coming weeks look for faculty announcements, cost/benefit details, and additional learning opportunities as part of this program.

SHI and Clemson University encourage health leaders interested in applying go to and complete the application by March 31, 2015.
