Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: University Curricula

The post-baccalaureate Graduate Certificate in Health Care Management program is designed for working professionals in and out of health care industries who are in need of an in-depth education in the field for enhanced career opportunities. The program is open to individuals who have earned at least a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and have an interest in the health care management certificate.

This program will be useful for professionals who seek to advance their knowledge in health care management either because they are currently working in the field of health care, yet have academic qualifications outside of health care, and would like a formal credential in health care to strengthen their marketability in the field or those who wish to begin a career in the field to advance their career possibilities.

The program can be completed in one to two years, by taking one to two courses per summer or winter term, depending upon students’ schedule and availability. Students interested in pursuing an MBA degree at Shippensburg University can apply any two of the four health care management courses toward meeting the MBA elective requirement.
