Program Description

The Master of Science Degree in Health Systems Management is a hands-on, applied program during which individuals understand and apply the knowledge, competencies and skills valued in the global marketplace and of value to students themselves. Courses focus on separate competency and skills such as team building, benchmarking, lean/six sigma analysis, project management and finance in Healthcare-related applications. To assist program completion, each of the three semesters ends with a Practicum/Project review of all learning in the previous semester. The courses culminate in a team project at an employer or sponsor that achieves practical, and measurable results before students graduate. Students can thus show their current or potential employers a real result done in real time.
