Baker College’s healthcare administration degree program enables you to develop the broad range of knowledge and critical thinking skills you need to effectively manage the delivery, quality and costs of healthcare services. Our curriculum is developed with the input of an advisory board of healthcare professionals to ensure it addresses the demands of the real world. This is an open enrollment program.
Healthcare administrators plan, direct and coordinate medical and health services in hospitals, private and public clinics, agencies and other healthcare organizations. Some administrators specialize in one area, such as finance or marketing, but others have broader responsibilities that can range from managing people and services to developing procedures to improve the quality of health services.
The Baker College Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration program is a four-year, Higher Learning Commission-accredited program consisting of 120 credit hours (24 hours of healthcare administration and 24 hours of general education requirements). Our curriculum includes 33 hours of required courses, human anatomy and physiology and a 121-hour work experience.
I chose Baker because they had such a detailed, laid-out plan for me. It got me working as a nurse, and their goal is to see everyone off and working. Baker faculty are very prepared professionals. I felt like they set me up for success.
