Accreditation

The master of science in health systems management is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME). CAHME accreditation represents that a program has been reviewed and approved by its peers and found to meet a set of criteria that signal a robust commitment to high quality.  It further demonstrates that a program has voluntarily committed to participate in a plan of continuous, self-improvement.

What's the Importance of CAHME accreditation?

CAHME’s mission is to advance the quality of health care management education. It is an organization that helps programs improve through peer and practitioner review. Attending a CAHMA-accredited program has significant professional benefits for you:

  • Students are assured that a CAHME-accredited program meets the high standards and criteria defined by leading academics and practitioners.
  • Graduating from a CAHME-accredited program enables you to better meet the changing demands of health management.
  • Job opportunities abound, with many health care employers interviewing only those applicants who graduate from CAHME-accredited programs.
