Our health care administration and management program provides an interdisciplinary approach to health care, including the business of health care, as well as a broader understanding of global health, access to care, disease and prevention.

Our program prepares students for employment as entry-level leaders and managers of health care facilities. In addition, our joint bachelor's/master's programs leading to a master's degree in business administration or health care administration and management provide a viable option for students wishing to further their study.
