Our Lady of the Lake University (OLLU) School of Business and Leadership offers a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration (BSHCA). The BSHCA is an undergraduate degree completion program designed for mid-level managers and department heads in healthcare agencies such as hospitals, long term and rehabilitation care, ambulatory care, home health and hospice, managed care organizations, physician offices, and specialty health care settings.
Beginning Summer 2013, the BSHCA will be offered at a new reduced tuition rate -- just $290 a credit hour!
With a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration, students develop an understanding of the delicate balance that exists between people, raw materials, information, technology, market forces, and healthcare laws, as well as being prepared to plan, organize, direct, and control the healthcare functions and processes of an agency or organization.
