Healthcare Management

The BBA in Healthcare Management offers students the foundational knowledge and practical skills that are essential for a demanding and rapidly changing healthcare industry. Healthcare managers, also called healthcare executives or healthcare administrators are at the heart of the business behind the healthcare field as these experts are in charge of planning, directing, and coordinating medical and health services in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, doctors’ offices and more.

The BBA in Healthcare Management will build on the Associates of Science in Business Administration pathway already established at GHC. Therefore, the lower division courses required by the proposed degree, and of all BBA students, are already in place. Students will be required to complete a minimum of 50 credit hours under the business administration pathway prior to applying to the BBA program.

Once admitted into the BBA in Healthcare Management program, by following a recommended sequence of courses, this pathway can be completed in 2 years.


The Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Management is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC)
