The Health Care Management major prepares students for entry level management careers in health care facilities, insurance companies, public health agencies, and pharmaceutical firms. The program prepares professionals to manage the sustainable delivery of clinical health care within a framework that seeks to reduce and manage errors, costs, and demands from regulators, providers, and consumers. With a required minor in the School of Business, the program allows interested and qualified students to continue on with an Ithaca College M.B.A. degree. Students receive an integrated education in general business management and the skills and tools necessary to assume a leadership role in managing health promotion, disease prevention, and health policy interventions.
