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.
