Degree Overview

a

Healthcare is more than just doctors, nurses, and insurance providers—there are entire professions of people working behind the scenes to support the healthcare system and ensure that it functions properly. One such position is the Healthcare Analyst, which tasks its professionals with making critical analytic decisions, managing data, and managing information based on extensive knowledge of the healthcare systems today’s practitioners work in. Alliant International University’s Master of Science in Healthcare Analytics (MSHCA) offered through our California School of Management and Leadership (CSML) is the program that delivers a quality education in advanced healthcare data analysis with emphases on information systems design, foundation of policy, optimization of clinical and medical service quality, the integration of statistical data, and more.

So, if you have a healthcare background and are looking to do something different, or if you have an analytic background looking to change into a career in the fast-growing world of healthcare, our MSHCA Degree Program may just be the right choice for you.

Honors Program

CSML's MS in Healthcare Analytics program now has an Honors Program for high-achieving students. 

This Honors Program cohort will meet once a month for a deep-dive discussion on contemporary trending industry issues, gaps, advances, and opportunities and will engage in research projects led by faculty that are designed to further the reach of their education in a manner commensurate with their existing academic achievement. This research can lead to pieces for publication in scientific, peer-reviewed journals, and the teams who successfully publish pieces will be listed as research authors in the publication itself.

Each and every student within the Honors Program will also receive professional executive mentoring on their selected career path, CV creation, and interviewing advice, as we guide our graduates to be prepared to make their impact in their career as soon as possible.

Finally, Honors Program members will assist instructors and gain invaluable experience as both a teacher and a leader as they work with these professors on assignment preparation, assisting students with coursework, and will ultimately conduct student-perspective evaluations in courses where they will provide feedback to instructors on student perceptions of course instruction.

The Honors Program is for students that have maintained a GPA of 3.5 or above for 2 consecutive terms, and will be required to pass a CSML faculty interview as well.
