Overview

Projections for the healthcare industry state that job growth will remain above average into the next decade. The needs of an aging population along with the increased human life cycle are just some of the factors contributing to this growth.

The Graduate Certificate in Health Management examines the financial, political, legal, and operational aspects of a healthcare facility and explores the evolution of healthcare delivery in the United States.

Health managers are found in different roles across healthcare organizations including:

  • Strategic planning
  • Operations
  • Human resources
  • Fundraising
  • Purchasing 

Health managers are responsible for designing, administering, managing, and evaluating health policies, programs, and services. The courses in this certificate also serve as a concentration in the Master of Science in Leadership program.
