A health administration degree, driven by today’s health care imperatives

Critical success factors driving health care systems today are often referred to as the Quadruple Aim:

  • Improve the health of populations
  • Enhance the quality of care for individuals
  • Reduce the per capita cost of health care
  • Improve the work-life of care providers

Successfully managing strategy, finance, patient experience, and operations in the highly regulated and unique health care sector requires specialized competencies and expertise beyond a traditional MBA. The master of science in health systems management is the currency needed to advance and perform in health care systems today.


The MS in health systems management is led by a team of faculty who are practice-based scholars with extensive experience in the field. Faculty members are accessible, offer constructive feedback on course projects and assignments, and are at the forefront of providing an educational experience in which students can learn and directly apply classroom theories and concepts to the real-world practice of health care management.

An advisory board of health administrators from around the country guides the development of the degree program to ensure the curriculum addresses today’s most pressing challenges for health care leaders.

Industry outlook

Health care is the largest industry in the U.S. and the second-largest employer, representing 20% of the Gross National Product, and employing more than 11 million people. Employment opportunities for health systems managers and administrators will increase by 20% over the next 10 years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
