BBA Healthcare Administration

Dear Healthcare Administration Major:

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed below each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. Two sample schedules are provided as general guidelines to help you build a full schedule each term. The elective courses must be selected with your advisor to satisfy all core curriculum and state, lab science, and multicultural requirements.

Healthcare Administration majors work with the newest information systems technology and receive a broad educational foundation, as well as, an intensive education in the business and management disciplines. Students develop communication, problem-solving, interpersonal skills, and master the knowledge and skills employers demand. Minors in Advertising and Promotions, Business Analytics, Business Law, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Healthcare Administration, Human Resources, Operations Management, Professional Sales, and Supply Chain Management allow majors to gain in-depth knowledge of these areas. Our internship program exposes management majors to real-world business skills and enhances their chances for success. Healthcare Administration professionals can be found in: public and private healthcare organizations, corporations, government, and non-profit institutions.

With appropriate planning, both the BBA in Healthcare Administration and the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees can be completed in five years. An undergraduate student may take up to 9 semester credit hours of graduate classes without being admitted to the Graduate School. Students must be within 30 credit hours of graduation and have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher. MBA graduates are well-prepared for their careers in any business enterprise.

Students who complete the healthcare administration major graduate with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree. All BBA programs are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Less than 5% of business schools worldwide have AACSB accreditation. All Healthcare Administration majors complete the BBA senior college core (15 hours); a common eighteen-hour sequence of major courses; nine hours of required healthcare administration electives; nine hours of healthcare administration and business electives; and nine hours of general (non-business) electives. These courses, plus the prerequisite Area F hours in business, economics and accounting, provide each student with a solid background in business and management.
