MA in Biomedicine: Healthcare Management Concentration

Healthcare administration from a biomedicine perspective

Biomedical related businesses benefit from administrative persons who both understand the science of biomedicine as well as the business of administration. Graduates from our MA in Biomedicine Healthcare Management Concentration find entry-level administrative positions within health care institutions such as hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, biotech industries, etc. The administrative portion of this track draws upon EMU’s well-known MBA program for the business administration courses while the specific health-care related portion of this track draws upon EMU’s outstanding MSN in Leadership and Management program.
