2+2 BBA in Healthcare Management


The Finlandia 2+2 BBA in Healthcare Management allows students to combine interests in two professional areas and to prepare themselves for careers in a rapidly expanding field. This program can create opportunities for those who want to apply their business knowledge and skill in the service of others.

This second degree 2+2 BBA option is ideal for students with associate degrees in medical assisting or similar medical administration programs.  Like the BBA Healthcare Management major, it was jointly developed by Finlandia’s College of Health Sciences and International School of Business.   It prepares students for careers in a wide range of healthcare-business related occupations including healthcare human resource functions, healthcare finance, office management, healthcare billing, and admissions.

The major difference between the BBA Healthcare Management major and the 2+2 BBA in Healthcare Management is that students in the BBA program have a slightly stronger background in business while 2+2 BBA Healthcare Management students have a stronger background in healthcare administrative procedures.

2+2 BBA Healthcare Management majors complete (1) modified BBA General Education requirements, which require Anatomy and Physiology I, Introduction to Communications, and Psychology and 30 credits of English, math, communications and liberal arts courses and (2)  a modified BBA Core curriculum to fit the needs of 2+2 BBA students, which includes microeconomics, fundamentals of accounting, human resource management, organizational behavior plus the same major requirements as found in the BBA Healthcare Management major.
