The BBA Healthcare Management concentration is a distinctive, interdisciplinary program with a business focus and a strong biological component. In addition to the BBA business core and electives, the curriculum requires courses in biological sciences and other disciplines. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, a Healthcare Management concentration student’s program of study is almost completely pre-specified.
