Health Care Management Major — B.S.
The health care management degree program is designed to prepare students to manage the sustainable delivery of clinical health care within a framework that seeks to reduce and manage errors, costs, and demands on the supply chain. The program in health care management produces professionals who understand not only the financial transactions in the health care market but also the public policy, government, science and technology, and culture behind the institution of health care. Graduates of this program are well prepared to serve as administrators in health care organizations, insurance companies, and health care consulting firms.
In addition to the required and elective courses in this degree program, students must complete a minor in the School of Business, in either Pre-MBA or business. Students who choose the Pre-MBA minor are prepared to apply to Ithaca College’s M.B.A. program upon graduation.
