  • Foster collaboration between providers, administrators and regulators, and so much more. 

In Champlain College's online Master of Science in Health Care Administration program, we'll help to increase your knowledge and competencies with professionally-relevant content and exercises in quality and process improvement, human resources, finance, leadership, technical and information systems. And we'll take you even further through the emerging field of business analytics, "big data," and data visualization; as well as through the use of "design thinking" - a more solutions oriented and patient-centric approach to industry challenges. Coupled with the program's interdisciplinary cohort model (a small group of fellow students with whom you will work throughout your studies), your courses will serve as a launching pad for some of your deepest, and most creative thinking.
