The graduate program in health administration is designed to prepare persons for administrative roles ultimately leading to top-level executive positions in complex health services organizations. The curriculum emphasizes strategic and operational management, thus orienting students toward the broad spectrum of managerial problems and functions likely to be encountered by health services organizations.
The program’s educational objectives and content are based upon the premise that a large number of students who select this curriculum aspire to become senior executives of health care organizations at some point in their careers. The graduate program in health services administration is designed for full-time students.
The graduate program was accredited initially in 1968, one of the first programs in the United States to achieve that status. It has continuously maintained its national accreditation status, and in 2011 the program was awarded a six-year accreditation.
