Canisius to Offer Health Information Technology Concentration within MBA Degree
Buffalo, NY - Canisius College will offer a concentration in health information technology within its Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree beginning with the Fall 2017 semester. The health information technology concentration can be completed as part of the 48 credit hours required for the MBA degree.
“Information technology is the backbone of the health care industry,” said Daniel J. Borgia, PhD, dean of the Richard J. Wehle School of Business. “Health information technology is a growing field in need of personnel with this expertise. This concentration provides graduates with marketable knowledge of the complexities of information technology and the skills to assume leadership roles in health care organizations.”
The health information technology concentration consists of three online courses presented in eight-week formats, providing flexibility for students. Concentration courses, instructed by top faculty in the field, include Introduction to Health IT, Planning, Management and Leadership for Health IT and Health IT Workflow.
The Wehle School of Business develops business professionals to lead within their organizations, to excel in the globally competitive marketplace and to behave as ethically and socially responsible individuals. This is achieved through teaching excellence, intellectual vigor and community involvement in the Jesuit tradition.
Western New York’s top business school, the Wehle School of Business is an AACSB accredited institution. Fewer than five percent of business schools worldwide have earned this accreditation, which is considered a symbol of the highest standard in business education.
Canisius College is one of 28 Jesuit universities in the nation and the premier private university in Western New York.
