Management: Health Care Management

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

Health care and business are both complex and ever-changing industries. With Emmanuel's location adjacent to leading health care providers in the Longwood Medical Academic Area and in the business mecca of Boston, this interdisciplinary major is a natural fit for students with a passion for health and a knack for the intricacies of business.

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. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for medical and health service managers are expected to grow by the faster-than-average rate of 23% through 2022.
