Program Description:

The Master of Health Care Administration program offers an advanced educational opportunity in health care leadership. It is designed to provide graduates an opportunity to assume upper level managerial and leadership roles within the health care delivery system. Health care administrators are an integral part of health care delivery. They oversee and coordinate services, determine budgetary allocations, approve new programs, and control where and how health care dollars are spent within a facility or system. The Master of Health Care Administration program is designed for full-time students. Online instruction is the primary method of content delivery. Courses are taught during fall, spring, and summer terms. Due to the specialized content of the program and the close working relationship between faculty and students, an on-site orientation will be required. The orientation will be conducted over a weekend at the beginning of the student’s first term. New students are admitted only in the fall term. The program requires six terms for completion. Students are required to register for nine hours for fall and spring terms and six hours for each summer term.


The School of Business Administration was initially accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in 1944. AACSB has since been renamed to the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business. Accreditation is offered only to schools that meet the strict academic standards and program requirements prescribed by this association. Both the undergraduate and graduate curricula received full reaccreditation in 2001. Rather than remain content with the status quo, the school continues to evaluate and revise its programs to meet the standards reflective of contemporary issues and demands.
