Designed for professionals like you

There is a shortage of experienced and highly-educated health care leaders. With a greater emphasis on health outcomes and major changes in provider reimbursement, there is a greater need for leaders and managers with the business skills to improve the quality of health care services, while simultaneously improving efficiency and cost-effectiveness. If you are a current health care manager or executive looking to improve your organization, increase employee retention and satisfaction, and reduce costs, please contact our graduate admissions office at (802) 258-9209 for detailed information to provide to your employees.

The HCA degree is designed for professionals like you. Classes meet in monthly "residencies" at our campus in Brattleboro, Vermont, and are supplemented by a robust online environment. Students benefit from the experience of our faculty of teacher-practitioners, who provide you with in-depth knowledge as well as a professional network to achieve success in your work.

36 credits are required for graduation.
