This option builds on BSBA core administrative knowledge and managerial skills to give business management students a competitive edge for operating in the complex and changing healthcare environments.  Healthcare administrators are management or clinical professionals who perform in supervisory and leadership roles in the healthcare organizational settings.  As cost pressures and quality-assurance imperatives become increasingly important for viability of healthcare services, administrators with appropriate business knowledge and skills continue to be in demand.
