Reading, Pa (PRWEB) November 12, 2015
The addition of a new Healthcare Administration major this fall gives Alvernia University’s undergraduate students a choice to specialize in one of seven different business areas.
Widely recognized for healthcare degrees like nursing, RN-BSN and Occupational Therapy, Alvernia University is now offering a new area of study for students interested in the business side of the healthcare field.
“A strong demand has developed for individuals to work on the operations and administrative side of healthcare,” says Dr. Scott Ballantyne, director of Alvernia’s business department. “To address this need, we created a new healthcare administration program — marrying business concepts with the terminology, regulations and policy requirements unique to healthcare.”
Healthcare Administration joins six other innovative business programs at Alvernia: accounting, finance, human resource management, marketing, management and sport management. Visit Alvernia.edu to learn more.
