Power the business side of the healthcare industry.  

Pursue Your Passion 

You know the demand for healthcare will always be strong, but you don’t see yourself working bedside with patients. Instead, you’re into leadership—managing resources and people, setting policy, budgeting, complying with industry regulations, and guiding an organization toward improving both the bottom line and the quality of patient care.

100% Flexible

In this program you’ll learn not only general business concepts but also the unique characteristics of the healthcare industry. And, with the benefit of taking classes online, you'll have more flexibility to work, complete an internship, or balance life's other responsibilities.

Future Focused

Students graduating from this program get jobs in places like hospitals, healthcare technology companies, medical offices, insurance companies, and government agencies.

We let our graduates do the talking...

"I have a passion for health and healthcare, and it is a great feeling to be able to communicate to the public about the products and services they are able to access so close to home. I knew I’d found my calling. I’m so thrilled to be able to be using my education."Julie Suedmeyer-Buller '05, Health Management

  • "I believe that one of the most important skills I can teach my students is to critically evaluate and verify the information they receive, rather than accept everything at face value. In the end, one of the most important roles of education is to teach students not what to think, but how to think for themselves; not what kind of argument to support, but to weigh those arguments and make informed decisions."
    —Dr. Natallia Gray, Ph.D.
    Assistant Professor of Economics
