The future of the Affordable Care Act seems murky these days. But regardless of what becomes of it, the health care field, estimated by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services to comprise one-sixth of the American economy, is growing both in size and complexity.
To answer the industry’s pressing need, Fordham has created a new multi-disciplinary master’s degree in health administration that will launch in fall 2018.
The degree taps expertise from across the University, including the Graduate School of Social Service and Fordham School of Law. Befitting that multidisciplinary approach, the degree program is hosted in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and headed by Falguni Sen, Ph.D., professor of business at the Gabelli School of Business.
“People are beginning to understand that health care is not something that is just owned by business, or regulatory services, or social service people, or by ethics experts,” said Sen, who heads the business school’s Global Healthcare Innovation Management Center. “It’s something that everyone has to come together to really deliver.”
