Minor Overview

Learn the business of health care

With aging populations, reforms and a rapid increase in health care spending, there is a growing demand for professionals who understand the business essentials of health care. Quinnipiac’s minor in health care management covers the knowledge you’ll need to ensure that health care organizations are profitable and efficient, and meet the highest industry standards. 

You’ll learn the complexities of health care systems, policies and financing; the legal and ethical issues related to health care delivery; and how to understand and assess massive amounts of health care data. This expertise is necessary for leadership positions in hospitals, physician’s offices, nursing homes, medical consulting and branding firms, pharmaceutical companies and other health care-based organizations. 

This minor complements a range of undergraduate business majors, health science disciplines such as biomedical marketing, and our certificate programs in health care compliance and long-term care administration. It also provides a solid foundation for the health care management track of the MBA program within the School of Business.
