Health Systems Administration
The master of science in health systems administration is designed to provide strategic skills for today’s health care management. Now, as never before, health care is rapidly transforming. The pace of technology and innovation are changing how, when, and where healthcare is provided, and who is providing it. Concurrently, health care customers have high expectations for quality and responsiveness to their needs—delivered in a cost-effective manner. To provide these strategic skills, the master of science in health systems administration builds on a foundation of courses in policy and law formation, healthcare economics, innovation, and leadership. Additional options are provided through course selections, building an integrated program that meets the individual challenges of participating students.
This online program allows students to pursue their degree while maintaining full-time employment in locations around the world. A distinct advantage is the diversity of the student population, allowing for creative discussion and comprehension of global health care issues and how these relate to the standards and practices of the American health care system. The ability to share information and ideas, and to compare and contrast strategies, allows students a level of creativity and scope of practice not found in the traditional classroom.
