Overview

The Master's In Healthcare Management

The Healthcare Management program of the Florida Institute of Technology provides exposure to the needed expertise required to respond to pandemics, natural disasters, and health organizations focused on effective leadership.

Healthcare is rapidly becoming one of the nation’s largest employers. As a result, demand for qualified managers who can navigate daily operations, critical issues, and social policy is growing every day. Graduates with a healthcare management degree develop a strong background in how to guide organizational behavior and cultivate inter-organizational relationships, apply scientific knowledge to public health problems, and build and sustain community coalitions.
