University of Detroit Mercy

As Michigan's largest independent university, University of Detroit Mercy has an outstanding tradition of academic excellence, firmly rooted in a strong liberal arts curriculum. This tradition dates back to the formation of the two Detroit institutions: the University of Detroit founded in 1877 by the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and Mercy College of Detroit, founded in 1941 by the Religious Sisters of Mercy. In 1990, these schools consolidated to become University of Detroit Mercy - a university dedicated to providing affordable, accessible, quality education, while meeting the career preparation needs of a diverse student population.

Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration

Designed to prepare individuals for entry and middle management or clinical supervisory positions in organizations, institutions and agencies that deliver health services.

Bachelor's to Master's in Health Services Administration (Accelerated 3-year)

This accelerated degree provides challenging academic coursework that prepares students for a successful career in health services administration: in such sectors as hospital and health systems management, medical groups, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, care management organizations, health information technology firms, supply chain companies, government/policy organizations, marketing firms, health insurers, healthcare management consulting firms.   

The program builds on current coursework offered in both programs and eliminates the need for students in the accelerated-degree program to take undergraduate versions of eight graduate courses (20 credits total). The accelerated format allows substantial financial benefits to the students, as well as significantly less time needed to obtain the Master’s degree. Transfer students from MCC can complete the program in a little as 3 years, provided they satisfy all the requirements stated in the Plan of Study for this accelerated degree.  

This fast-track degree is for full-time undergraduate students that become full-time graduate students to combine to be a 3-year accelerated program for students transferring from MCC under the Articulation Agreement with the University of Detroit Mercy. All students must complete at least 142 credit hours, the University Core Curriculum, and all other requirements of the Bachelor’s and Master’s programs. Students must maintain full-time status through all parts of the program (excluding some summers if the student is normally on a regular academic year cycle).  

Master of Health Services Administration

Designed to build on the health-related preparation and work experience of its adult students to prepare them for promotion into a variety of health care management roles. The program integrates management theory with specific application to health care in every course.
