Health Care Management Major — B.S.
The mission of the Ithaca College Health Care Management program is to provide students with unique and innovative learning experiences directed at developing professionally competent entry-level health care managers. We combine critical thinking and practical skills with experiential learning to shape socially conscious leaders to be bold in their designs to change health care delivery for the better.
The health care management degree program prepares students to manage the sustainable delivery of clinical health care within a framework that seeks to reduce errors, manage costs, and support the 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.
The program's mission fits within the broader mission of the department, school, and College to develop bold thinkers engaged in learning with and from one another.
