Complex, crowded and ever-changing, the healthcare marketplace has never been so challenging for a provider, payer or other stakeholder to succeed.

The graduate certificate in healthcare management is designed to enable students to become competent, confident leaders and expose them to the critical management, legal, economic and technological issues that healthcare systems, long-term care providers, clinicians, device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and other organizations face.

Course Description

Course descriptions and additional information about the curriculum can be found in the University catalog.

Healthcare Management Certificate Curriculum

Coursework involves a required Organizational Theory & Systems Management course (3 credit hours).

  • Health Economics
  • Health Informatics
  • Healthcare Policy, Law & Ethics
  • Managing Change, Creativity & Innovation

Schedule and Class Participation

Classes are offered in a blend of weekend and evening formats. Weekend classes meet on alternating weekends from 4-6:45 p.m. on Fridays and/or 8 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturdays. Evening classes are offered Monday through Thursday evenings 6:15-9 p.m.

Students choose how to participate with three options for attending classes: in-person, in real-time online or by watching a recording. All three options can be utilized throughout the program based on the most convenient option for your schedule. This format enables you to balance a busy schedule and earn a credential in less time than a traditional MBA or other master's program.
