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.

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.
