On a roll

For the fifth consecutive year, Barry University’s Master of Science in Health Services Administration program has been ranked at the national level according to Modern Healthcare magazine. The program, part of the College of Arts and Sciences, was ranked 10th in the nation out of business graduate schools for physician-executives.

The program was ranked against universities with the same degree program, as well as other degrees for physician-executives such as Master of Public Health and Master of Medical Management degrees. There are more than 300 Master of Science in Health Services Administration programs in the country.

Programs were ranked by five factors, including length of time to complete, cost of total tuition, number of days students spend on campus, age of the program in years and number of total graduates. Rankings were based on a list of programs awarding MBAs or similar degrees in courses that focus on physicians. Barry’s program was ranked above well-known institutions such as the Yale School of Management and Duke and Harvard’s Schools of Public Health.
