If you are interested in working in one of the most dynamic industries in the country, join one of our Health Administration degrees. 


Our programs build on a basic foundation in management concepts and techniques to address issues unique to one of the nation’s most complex and rapidly growing industries, health care.

We have both an MBA in Health Administration and an MS in Health Administration. Health professionals who already hold an MBA and are interested in a more specialized course of study may consider the Master of Science in Health Administration. If you are new to the field and new to graduate school, consider the MBA in Health Administration.


Classes are held in the evenings so students can attend classes at times that work for them. Our class sizes are smaller so students can learn from expert practitioner faculty and network with other seriously motivated students. Students develop relationships that last for a lifetime.
