What will I learn?

If you’re positioning yourself for a promotion in the fields of health economics, policy, and administration, Ball State’s health economics certificate could be the credential that puts your resume on top.

Whether you’re an RN, public health professional, pharmacist, physician, health educator, human resource manager, or in a similar post, you need the critical thinking and analytical skills to navigate this growing industry.

Whatever your career track, you’ll use economic concepts to understand how policy decisions made at various levels of both business and government affect health care access, quality, and cost.

You’ll learn to analyse the benefits and costs of different methods of health care delivery and financing, from the viewpoint of patients, providers, and manufacturers.

Until you’re ready to pursue an MBA with a concentration in health economics, policy, and administration, the certificate is the next best thing and puts you 12 credits into the MBA degree.
