Online Master of Arts in Management Degree Program

The health care industry is booming, but so are challenges that come along with it: quality of care, cost of care, access to care — not to mention radical changes in laws and regulations. Health care providers are seeking leaders with higher levels of education who can evaluate and find solutions to these challenges. Briar Cliff’s online Master of Arts in Management with a specialization in health care administration provides just that!

Whether you're a physician, nurse, pharmacist or a business professional in the industry, this will add the expert-level business and leadership skills you need to become a more effective health care manager. 

How does the program work?

  • Convenient, online courses. All coursework is offered in an accommodating online format using our cutting-edge online learning platform.
  • Classes, with impact. In our curriculum, you’ll study finance, law, human resources and ethics — all delivered through the lens of the health care industry.
  • Non-thesis option. There are two capstone options to complete the program — either defend a graduate thesis, or take an extra course in an are you’d like to improve. You decide!
  • Caring, veteran faculty members. Who says an online degree can’t be personal? Our instructors have decades of teaching and professional experience, and they’ll be with you at every step — never more than an email, phone call or video chat away.

Our program allows transfer of up to nine credit hours of graduate course work from another accredited institution (if they have been completed within the past five years). Too see how your credits stack up, contact an advisor.
