External, Professional Certifications

Get Certified!

Our program is interested in the success of its students. As a result, we have added to our curriculum resources to enable those who study to obtain professional certifications that are external to our program and are recognized as premier in the industry. These certifications enable our students to be more productive in the workplace and compete better among their peers. See the article we published on the subject!  We also published an article on the impact of professional certification on time-to-hire and job satisfaction in the Journal of Health Administration Education.
