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.

Healthcare Management Certificate Curriculum

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

Students will then complete a program of 12 credit hours, exploring topics such as:

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

Schedule and Class Participation

Classes meet on weeknight evenings and 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.

Stackable Certificates

If you're interested in earning your MBA but don't have the time to commit to a full program, our stackable certificates allow you to earn credits toward an MBA degree and earn micro-credentials along the way.
