Designed to help you navigate the business of health
MBA: Closer than you think Let this certificate be a springboard to a master of business administration (MBA) degree. All courses in this 12-hour certificate can be applied toward a Ball State MBA, including the new MBA concentration in health economics, policy, and administration.
If you are a professional in the health industry or a related field, Ball State’s MBA-level certificate in health economics, policy, and administration will give you the analytical skills and policy perspectives to navigate the health industry as it responds to ongoing governmental and market influences. Our 100 percent online certificate will help you understand and analyze the benefits and costs of different methods of healthcare delivery and financing from all viewpoints—patients, providers, and manufacturers. This specialized credential is especially helpful for those who need to stay on top of the business of health, such as physicians, hospitalists, nurses, healthcare administrators, medical product manufacturers, wellness specialists, and professionals in insurance, pharmaceuticals, long-term care, ambulatory care, public health, and more. This is one of only a few programs in the Midwest to offer in-depth health economics specialization. The courses are taught by faculty in Ball State’s Miller College of Business—one of only 15 percent of business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
Mode of Delivery All courses are available online, allowing you the convenience and flexibility you need for your work and life. There is no on-campus requirement.
