America's healthcare systems, including providers, suppliers, insurance organizations, and policy organizations face a number of challenging imperatives in today’s healthcare environment. Administrators and managers require a deeper understanding of the implications of these imperatives as well as models of new ways of thinking and creating solutions.
The Felician University Master of Science in Healthcare Administration (MSHA) enables students to develop strategic leadership approaches to solving problems in organizations as well as advancing their professional careers while building awareness of the various aspects of the dynamic healthcare environment.
The MSHA program focuses on building core competencies including the ability to integrate and apply 21st-century leadership concepts, work in and manage teams, communicate effectively to multiple audiences, make better business decisions, and demonstrate personal and organizational ethical and professional standards. Advanced courses include scholarly project work and an optional executive field placement/capstone.
Using an interdisciplinary approach that examines the healthcare industry from a nursing and business perspective, students increase their strategic thinking, decision making, and teamwork competencies through online discussions, major papers, executive summaries, in-class discussions, and case presentations, building critical thinkers who dig deeper and question the how and the why. Most importantly, our commitment to ethical decision-making is unique – preparing healthcare leaders who reflect the Franciscan mission within a global society and world-class health systems.
