Categories: Academics, Blog, News

Webber International University has announced its intention, pending approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), to introduce the Bachelor of Arts in Health Services Administration degree.

“Webber’s curriculum has always been driven largely by the needs of employers,” said Dr. Keith Wade, the University’s President & CEO. “While we have offered management degrees for decades, the evolution of this one has been driven by the needs of hospitals, healthcare agencies, managed care organizations, medical practices, health insurance companies, and nursing homes and residential facilities. Much like our existing Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice Management, Bachelor of Science in Sport Business Management, and Bachelor of Science in Hospitality and Tourism Management degrees, this degree combines universal leadership and management education with a number of industry specific areas such as health care trends, quality assurance, ethical issues, public policy, management of key healthcare industry financial metrics, and risk management.”

Pending approval by SACSCOC the University hopes to begin its first courses in August of 2019.

Established in 1927 by Roger Babson as the first college chartered under Florida’s then new charitable and educational laws, and one of the first schools of business for women in the nation, Webber International University now educates men and women from over 50 different nations.
