Tomorrow’s leaders are those that are adept at business decision-making, understand the healthcare industry, and have the confidence to navigate an industry in flux. In the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration and Policy, you’ll explore fundamental business strategy concepts as they apply to the healthcare industry.

Your coursework will draw from different disciplines such as psychology and economics as you analyze the frameworks for strategic decision-making and key principles of organizational design. You may also choose to study topics such as the impact of global economics on the American healthcare system or management of supply chain operations in the healthcare area. You’ll gain industry know-how and agility, as well as the confidence to face uncertain and high-demanding environments with success.

Just-in-Time Learning. The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration and Policy is designed to give you training that you can use immediately. The skills you learn in an evening class will be useful to you the next morning at work. At D’Amore-McKim School of Business, you won’t find theoretical training for a theoretical future—you’ll have the opportunity to gain practical, real-world knowledge rooted in the realities of working life.

Study on your own terms. The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration and Policy has been designed with working professionals in mind. Courses are offered on weeknights and Saturdays. You may even take one of our courses online. You can choose to come to campus just one night a week or accelerate the program by taking a heavier course load each semester.

Start your Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration and Policy at a time that works for you. You can enter the program in January, May, or September.

Build toward something more. In the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration and Policy, you will explore fundamental business strategy concepts as they apply to the healthcare industry. You may also choose to study topics such as the impact of global economics on the American healthcare system or management of supply chain operations in the healthcare sector.

When you are ready to pursue a full graduate degree at Northeastern University—now or in the future—the credits you earn during the certificate program may be applied to eligible master’s programs, including the Part-Time MBA. This is a valuable opportunity to turn your career-enhancing graduate certificate into a more advanced professional credential.
