Barry University’s Master of Science in Health Services Administration is ranked one of nation’s largest
Miami Shores, Fla. – Barry University’s Master of Science in Health Services Administration degree has been ranked the 16th largest program of its kind in the country, according to Modern Healthcare magazine.
It is the third consecutive year the program has been included in Modern Healthcare’s annual list, ranking the 25 largest Health Administration degrees out of over 300 nationwide. The ranking, an improvement from last year’s rank at 22, places Barry’s Master in Health Services Administration among those of other large and prestigious institutions such as University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NYU, Columbia and Boston University.
“This continued success attests to the excellent career outcomes of our alumni and current students,” said Dr. Alan Whiteman, director and associate dean of the program. “Contributing to the program’s growth and successes are the partnerships, which have evolved with local healthcare organization in the tri-county area…This point of delivery model brings graduate education directly to healthcare workers and physicians who otherwise might find it hard to drive to campus.”
The list, published in the Aug. 20 issue of Modern Healthcare, is based on the total number of students enrolled, taken from a 2006-2007 survey of programs. There are currently 97 students enrolled in Barry’s degree.
