Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management

The next generation of healthcare leaders will be required to have specialized knowledge and skills to compete, to lead and to succeed. Students can become part of this next generation of leadership by entering JSOM’s Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management degree program. It prepares students by combining the strength of seasoned academic researchers and experienced practitioners in the field.

Careers in Healthcare Management

Graduates of the Healthcare Management Program seek careers in varied areas, including quality assurance, health information technology, clinic management and human resources.

An internship is an excellent way to gain valuable work experience while assessing which area of healthcare is right for you. Jindal School students must complete an internship as a requirement for their major. The Jindal School’s fully staffed Career Management Center (CMC), working in tandem with the University’s Career Center, helps students prepare for and seek internships, as well as post-graduation employment. Both centers are staffed with licensed counselors who provide students with strategies for mastering job interviews, writing professional cover letters and resumes and connecting with campus recruiters, among other services.
