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

- "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."
