MS in Health Administration | Explore a business career in the health industry

If you are interested in working in one of the most dynamic industries in the country, join one of our health administration degrees. Our programs build on a basic foundation in management concepts and techniques to address issues unique to one of the nation’s most complex and rapidly growing industries, health care.

Healthcare is the largest industry in the U.S. and the second largest employer with more than 11 million jobs. Virtually all new private sector jobs over the past 5 years came from healthcare and the sector continues to grow faster than most other segments.

We have both an MBA in Health Administration and an MS in Health Administration. Health professionals who already hold an MBA and are interested in a more specialized course of study may consider the Master of Science in Health Administration. If you are new to the field and new to graduate school, consider the MBA in Health Administration.

My degree from the Health Administration Program made it possible for me complete the transition from the high tech industry to health care. I graduated from the program with the skills necessary to find a rewarding job and challenging career. I would not have the job I have today without my education from CU Denver.
