Healthcare Administration

The Healthcare Administration major at Avila

Develop skills to thrive in the in-demand healthcare industry with Avila’s Healthcare Administration B.S.B.A. degree. At Avila, you’ll learn how to navigate and solve issues in healthcare. Your studies will utilize industry research and statistics to help you capitalize and excel outside of the classroom.

In an industry that is growing and diversifying like healthcare is, these skills will help you stand apart. Small classes and an emphasis on mentorship differentiate Avila, and the Healthcare Administration program adds substantial flexibility in charting your coursework and career trajectory depending on your needs. You’ll receive one-on-one guidance and instruction from your professors—not just a T.A.—who are there to help you with any challenges you encounter along the way. And thanks to our long-standing relationships with the Kansas City healthcare industry, your degree is well respected and acknowledged.
