How the COE Forum helped UMBC launch a Master's in Health IT

Hear Chris Steele, Senior Associate Vice Provost, and other members of UMBC's COE leadership team discuss how COE Forum market research helped them determine demand and a potential curriculum for a master's in health information technology.

Following a COE Forum presentation on opportunities in the health care field, COE leaders at the University of Maryland-Baltimore Country requested the Forum's help deciding if they should launch a professional master's degree in health information technology.

The COE Forum's market research service provided UMBC with employer demand data and actionable advice to successfully launch a degree program that aligned with faculty research interests, employment demand among regional health care providers, and the requirements of legislation such as the Affordable Care Act.
