Business Division

 

Health Care Management Program Requirements

The Division of Business Administration trains students to become contributing members of today�s corporate, entrepreneurial, public and non-profit organizations.  While an objective of the Division is to prepare a person for specific career orientation, the Division recognizes that the student must also develop into an individual ready to adapt to personal and social problems as well as to a constantly changing global, competitive environment. Communication and leadership skills are critical and will be honed through experiential learning, internship opportunities, and student organizational involvement. Prior to entering a specialized curriculum, students will broaden their preparation in written and oral communications, the social and natural sciences, mathematics and other courses that will prepare them for a lifetime of learning.

Special Note: A course taken as an elective for a BUS major cannot be used as an elective to satisfy the requirements of another BUS major or minor.

Health Care Management Major                           Computer Code: BSHC

The Health Care Management Major promotes an understanding of America’s complex and evolving health care system and increases the competencies of students pursuing careers as managers and leaders in that field. Students will analyze perspectives, methods, and values associated with the delivery, management and finance of health services. They will evaluate health data, payments systems, management practices, ethical principles, public policies, promotional strategies and system designs to discover ways to meet the demand for effective, affordable, efficient and responsible health care.

The major promotes organizational insight and managerial ability for those who desire leadership positions in health-related enterprises. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of both health care professionals with technical/clinical degrees as well as those of traditional undergraduate students. The curriculum in total is also geared toward enhancing the students oral and written presentation skills as well as overall problem solving skills.
