The Healthcare Management emphasis allows students to develop health industry-specific knowledge, positioning them for managerial careers in a broad range of healthcare and related organizations.

The Healthcare Management emphasis is a customized nine-unit program available to Eller students only. The Healthcare Management emphasis can be added to any Eller major. Courses cannot “double dip” with major courses. Students need to be in the professional program to undertake the emphasis.
