Are you looking to develop your leadership skills and have at least one year of practical experience in healthcare? If so, then our Healthcare Administration BAT degree program might be the perfect fit for you. Our degree will provide you the next step in a foundation and framework for growth and success as a healthcare manager by reinforcing important business knowledge and skills.

The Healthcare Administration program emphasizes a career-focused curriculum with practical, hands-on projects. Applicants are eligible for admission to the program if they have earned an associate’s degree in Healthcare Administration (AAS), Medical Office Management (AAS), Health Information Technology (AAS), or Business Management (AAS) with a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher.
