Health Services Administration

High Demand. High Opportunity.

Employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 20 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, there should be increased demand for healthcare services.


Graduates will be able to explore management-oriented careers in a wide range of healthcare-related organizations. Graduates will also have the potential to oversee an assortment of essential activities including financial matters, legal compliance, human resources functions and public relations.

Career Opportunities

  • Healthcare administrator
  • Public health administrator

I always wanted to get my MBA, and with the MBA in Health Services Administration, it combines two of my passions — business and healthcare.

I have grown both personally and professionally through the duration of this program. The coursework has been challenging but manageable, and is easily tailored to fit your industry focus.

Never sacrificing quality for affordability, our graduate students are receiving a nationally accredited program that will translate into effective knowledge and opportunities.

Admission Requirements

Official transcript
Submit official transcripts confirming your bachelor’s or master’s degree/advanced certificate. This includes graduate-level coursework or post-baccalaureate degree/certificate. U.S. transcripts must be sent directly from the granting institution (electronic or mail). All international transcripts require verification via a World Education Services (WES) credit evaluation. If you are a SUNY Oswego alum, your official transcript will be automatically requested after entering your student ID and identifying SUNY Oswego as your school on the application upon submitting your application.

All applicants will be asked to supply transcripts that show evidence of overall undergraduate GPA. The average GPA of MBA applicants is approximately 3.2.

GMAT Optional

GMAT scores are not required for an applicant to be considered for admission to the MBA program. MBA applicants who believe that a GMAT/GRE score would strengthen their credentials for admission to the MBA program have the option to submit a test score as part of their application package.

The School of Business admissions committee, upon completion of its review of an application, may determine that a candidate’s profile needs strengthening for admission and may offer a deferral or a conditional admission that may include, among other things, required submission of a GMAT score.

Business essay

In 500–1000 words, describe your unique personal achievements relating to your academic interests, and include any experiences you feel have contributed to your educational and professional objectives, such as supervisory activities, program development, leadership activities, and special assignments. Explain what these achievements and experiences have meant to your professional growth, what you hope to achieve professionally in the next five years, what you expect out of your business degree, and how you will contribute to the classroom experiences. This essay should detail your reasoning for applying to SUNY Oswego and it will help the review team better understand your background and evaluate your application.

Department consultation

This is an opportunity to discuss earning your MBA degree with member of the School of Business, as well as discuss course requirements for your preferred MBA program. We will offer an evaluation of your academic and professional history to determine prerequisite foundation requirements.
