Program Description

More than ever before, healthcare needs business leadership for the new and rapidly evolving demands of the 21st century. In the Master of Business Administration in Healthcare Administration, you’ll learn the principles of global business leadership and understand how to manage the complexities of leading the business-related aspects of the constantly changing healthcare sector. Due to an aging population and healthcare reform, healthcare is the fastest-growing sector in the U.S. economy. Much has changed in the way healthcare-related businesses and facilities interact with care providers, patients and the government in the past several years, and more changes are on the way. The MBA in Healthcare Administration offers the core leadership skills and business knowledge, along with specialized knowledge of healthcare-specific business topics to help you navigate those changes and lead healthcare facilities and businesses into the future.
