Program Contact: Christopher Neidig  203-582-3868

The minor in health care management provides students with a foundational understanding of health care systems and employment options in this exciting and growing field. The business of health care is everywhere: insurance companies, hospitals, clinical practices, branding firms, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Regardless of the student’s career focus, this minor expands their understanding of the language of health care systems and enhances job prospects in the health care industry. Students learn how health care systems are managed, the ways in which health care relies on analytics, and the influence of government policies on the business of health care. Additionally, students may customize their studies with coursework in finance, analytics, supply chain, or entrepreneurship and strategy.
