The healthcare administration field is rapidly growing with expanding job opportunities. This major will help you learn the skills needed to have a successful career in healthcare administration.
As a healthcare administration graduate, you will be prepared to plan, lead and manage medical and health services in hospitals, physician group practices, skilled nursing facilities, insurance companies and public health facilities.
Coursework will include foundational business courses, including management, marketing, and finance. Healthcare courses will include Foundations of Healthcare Systems, Strategic Management and Marketing in Health Care, and Ethics in Health Care.
The major also complements the Healthcare Systems Management concentration in our MBA program; you'll have the opportunity to earn both a B.S. and an MBA from DeSales in 5 years.
Want to major in two different areas of business?
No problem! Most of your major core courses will be completed during your freshman and sophomore years, so you can work on your second major during your junior and senior years. That means you can complete two degrees in the traditional four year period.
