Executive Certificate in Health Administration

The Executive Certificate in Health Administration offers a strategic tool kit for those seeking to make an immediate impact in healthcare and allied fields.

As the U.S. population ages and more people have access to healthcare due to the Affordable Care Act, the industry needs managers with the specialized skills to organize medical records and data. The certificate curriculum emphasizes leadership and ethical decision-making responsibilities in this fast-moving environment through relevant skills and The University of Scranton's Jesuit mission and principles.

This five-course program emphasizes core skills to support a strategic and nimble executive approach to a fast-moving industry. All courses are selected from the full CAHME-accredited Master's in Health Administration and are taught by the same expert faculty and practicing industry experts.

The Certificate in Health Administration can be completed in just 10 months. In addition, you may apply your studies toward the full MHA degree (if the degree is completed within six years of starting the certificate).

An ACHE-Aligned Curriculum

The program consists of five courses from the full Master's in Health Administration program and aligns with competencies the American College of Healthcare Executives has defined as critical.

  • HAD 500 Health Care Organization and Administration
  • HAD 501 Health Care Financial Management
  • HAD 519 Health Services and Systems

You will learn from the same expert faculty members and practicing industry professionals that teach in the full master's program. You will also have the opportunity to communicate with other professionals in the field through class discussions.

Career-Focused Studies
