Majoring in Healthcare Management

Are you looking to expand your leadership role in healthcare? Our healthcare management major will build on your previous experience — students generally have two years of work or educational experience in healthcare — and develop your skills for leading in today's rapidly changing healthcare organizations.

You'll learn core management skills for healthcare organizations. You'll study business practices, leadership skills and support services used by healthcare administrators. And you'll develop and deepen your skills in healthcare economics, finance, accounting, diverse workforce management, information technology and marketing.

We'll also assist your search for internships and other real-world learning opportunities. Many students complete "stretch" assignments or applied career development projects at their current workplaces, gaining new skills and opportunities for advancement.

Advance Your Career and Your Life

A bachelor's degree with a healthcare management major will prepare you for leadership roles in healthcare organizations, social service agencies, assisted living and senior living organizations, pharmaceutical companies, biomedical firms and other for-profit and nonprofit organizations.

This is an excellent program for health professionals — clinical professionals, as well as people working on the administrative functions in hospitals, clinics and other healthcare organizations — who want to lead teams, manage facilities and advance into all areas of healthcare management.
