St. Thomas Aquinas College continues to expand its leading-edge, transformative, career-focused academic offerings with the launch of the new Master of Business Administration (MBA) in Healthcare Management and Informatics.
Offered within STAC’s highly regarded School of Business, the MBA in Healthcare Management and Informatics will prepare students to address the growing need for qualified healthcare industry leaders. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, employment of medical and health service managers is projected to grow 32 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations.
This new concentration offers a blend of healthcare management, informatics, finance, health information management, and law and ethics coursework. The health informatics field aims to develop methods and technologies for the acquisition, processing, and study of patient data, which comes from different sources and modalities, including electronic health records, diagnostic test results, and medical scans. Graduates will be able to analyze, interpret, and present healthcare data to healthcare organizations, so that it can be used to develop strategic plans and support organizational compliance.
Designed with the working professional in mind, the program offers evening, weekend, and online course options. STAC will also offer a standalone postbaccalaureate 15-credit certificate in Healthcare Management and Informatics.
Program Director, Dr. Joseph Charleman states: “We are thrilled to offer this new concentration that will train leaders in this fast-growing healthcare industry. St. Thomas Aquinas College is the only graduate program in the New York and New Jersey area that prepares graduates of this concentration. The program curriculum was developed based on the CAHIIM educational standards and guidelines for the Digital Health Leadership certificate. The DHL Certificate is recognized by healthcare organization executives and by (CHIME) The College of Healthcare Information Executives.”
The new Healthcare and Informatics concentration is an additional offering to the College’s robust MBA options. STAC offers a General MBA, which can be completed in person or exclusively online. Other areas of MBA concentrations offered include Management, Finance, Marketing, and Sport Administration.
The MBA program is accredited by the International Accreditation Council for Business Education.
