Management: Health Care Management

Create positive change in the health care environment by managing the way quality care is measured and delivered.

The Health care industry is both complex and ever-changing. Emmanuel's location adjacent to leading health care providers in the Longwood Medical Area and in the business mecca of Boston puts you in the center of it all. Our interdisciplinary program is a natural fit for students with a passion for health and the analytical skills necessary for business management today.

Health care management professionals who understand changes in health care laws, regulations and technology and are responsible for overseeing all operations including human resources, finance and marketing within the health care system are in high demand.
