Rutgers Among Top Universities Offering Health Administration Bachelor’s Degree

August 3, 2023

In late July, Becker’s Healthcare and Hospital Review compiled a list of the top-ranked U.S. universities offering a bachelor’s degree in health administration. With healthcare leaders exiting the industry at record rates, Becker’s notes that a degree in health administration from a top university can aid in one’s advancement in hospital operation leadership.

Becker’s is one of the leading sources for healthcare decision-makers in the industry. Through their platforms, they equip healthcare leaders with information and forums needed for continuing education, exchanging ideas, and furthering conversations about the most critical issues in American healthcare.

The list is based on data compiled by U.S. News & World Report. Universities are ranked according to several factors, including graduation and first-year retention rates, faculty resources, student excellence, and expert opinion.
