About

The Healthcare Management industry from University of Indianapolis is among the top in the nation experiencing a surge in the job market. According to economist Michael Wolf, the fastest-growing segment in the workforce will be healthcare workers, and 25 percent of new jobs generated will be within the healthcare industry—that’s 2.3 million jobs by 2024.

Overview

The MS in Healthcare Management program at University of Indianapolis is offered completely online and provides students who have a bachelor's degree with a solid understanding of the skills necessary to become successful in healthcare management. Whether you are new to the healthcare field or are currently involved, our two concentrations are tailored for students to work within specific facets of the industry.

The long-term care management concentration has been developed for students looking to work as administrators in skilled healthcare facilities, assisted living and residential care facilities, while the home and community-based care track prepares students for positions in hospice, home healthcare agencies and an array of outpatient care centers.

Program length & format 

The program requires the completion of 36 credit hours (12 courses of three credit hours each) with courses generally scheduled in accelerated blocks that last seven to seven and a half weeks, allowing students to complete two classes per 15-week term, concentrating on one course at a time.

Students will be required to complete an internship in the field. For students who can provide documentation of the completion of the Administrator-in-Training for certification in Indiana, the internship may be replaced by additional electives and completion of a capstone project. 

Students will complete the program over two years, taking six credit hours per semester.  This is a cohort-based program, meaning students begin at the same time, fostering networking skills and relationship building.
