Health Care Administration

Health care administration is designed for students interested in hospital or health care administration.

Many students will pursue a master's degree in hospital/health care administration after they graduate from Roanoke and then work for a hospital, health maintenance organization, or public/private medical facility.

Roanoke College's business administration programs enjoy accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). This assures that you'll be learning the latest in business strategies and management.

For the fourth consecutive year, The Princeton Review has named Roanoke College to its list of the top 36 great schools for business/finance majors.
