Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management
Rasmussen College

Program Details

If you’ve got a mind for business and a heart for healthcare, consider this: the Rasmussen College Healthcare Management Bachelor’s degree-completion program prepares you for a leadership role managing healthcare facilities in as few as 18 months.1 With your strong background in leadership, analytics, financial management and healthcare policy, combined with a thorough knowledge of diverse healthcare settings, you’ll be prepared to manage teams, initiate projects and steer policy through almost any organization.

You’ll benefit from small classes taught by healthcare industry professionals who help you refine the skills employers are hiring for. Hands-on projects allow you to gain relevant experience. Plus, students in all programs and at all credential levels study six employer-valued transferable skills, or soft skills: critical thinking, digital fluency, information literacy, communication, diversity and teamwork, and ethics and professional responsibility.

This degree is offered entirely online and classes start every six weeks at flexible times, letting you balance work, school and life. Rasmussen's generous transfer policy allows you to transfer your Associate’s degree or other college credits toward a Bachelor’s degree.2 Flex Choice® learning options allow you to save on tuition and accelerate your program by combining traditional courses, self-directed assessments and competency-based education—the best of all worlds—so you can receive credit by demonstrating what you know and can do. When you pursue your future at Rasmussen College, online doesn’t mean you’re on your own. Rasmussen provides robust student support services, such as academic advising, tutoring, library and learning services, 24/7 tech support and career services.

If your educational goals include a Master’s degree, our new accelerated Master’s pathway gives you the opportunity to start earning Master's degree credits while earning your Bachelor's degree. That means that you can finish up to 1/3 of your Master’s degree during your Bachelor’s degree program—saving you up to $4,000 in the process of earning your Master’s degree.3
