The increasing occurrence of public health epidemics, concerns with bioterrorism and a pressing need for innovative approaches to health crises all point to the importance of a global approach to health management. Students in the Graduate Certificate in Global Health Management program will be prepared to offer leadership in this area by developing an understanding of health governance, security and policy within a diverse and globalized world.
Our main campus is located 14 miles from New York City, in a region filled with top-notch healthcare facilities including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, medical programs and research institutes. International actors – like the United Nations and a host of nonprofit organizations that are active in global health and development – are also in close proximity. In addition, many of the healthcare administration courses are available online. Our supportive community and career resources will help students take this important step in advancing their career goals.
