Program Overview

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.
