Business of Health
UTSA Graduate Certificate in the Business of Health
The graduate certificate in the Business of Health is a 12-credit hour graduate option designed to equip health care and business professionals with the knowledge & skills they need to lead in today's rapidly changing health care environment. Our program is offered from a distinctively applied financial and managerial perspective.

Enrollment is available to students with a wide range of health care-related backgrounds. And there are effectively
no prerequisite course requirements.

The four courses are:

  • Seminar in Medicare Regulation
  • Legal & Tax Strategies for Healthcare Organizations
  • Healthcare Management
  • Elective—choose any one of the following:
    • Accounting for Healthcare Organizations
    • Legal, Ethical & Social Issues in Healthcare Management
    • Healthcare Economics & Policy
    • Organizational & Managerial Issues in Healthcare Delivery
    • Healthcare Management Internship

Our classes typically meet just one evening a week from 7–9:45 p.m. Classes can be offered during the summer session with sufficient demand.

Students apply for admission to UTSA as a special (non-degree-seeking) graduate student and specify admission
to a certificate program on their application.

Students currently enrolled in a post-baccalaureate degree program that requires a graduate admission test (such as
the DAT, GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, OAT, PCAT, etc.), are required to submit their graduate admission test
results. However, students who have not taken a graduate admission test may be waived from this requirement on a
case-by-case basis.

Students who already have a master's degree, equivalent-level professional degree (such as DDS, JD, MD, etc.) or
higher (such as Ph.D., DBA, etc.), are not required to submit graduate admissions test results for the certificate

Students must complete 12 credit hours of required coursework and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or above to earn the
Graduate Certificate in the Business of Health.
