Katie Kunkel

Katie speaks about her experiences in the health services administration program.

Our healthcare services administration program will help you develop the skills and gain the knowledge needed to manage healthcare organizations.

The Pre-Major Business Core must be completed before full admission to the School of Business major is granted.

Each of our majors begins with the freshman/sophomore (First/Second Year) curriculum. During the first two years of a four-year program of study, you will complete the liberal learning requirements of the university and the prerequisites for admission to the business majors.


Health Services Administration: Bachelor of Business Administration

We offer an undergraduate major, a minor, a master's level certificate and a master's specialization degree.
