Health administration can take many shapes and forms, but is most commonly referred to as the application of leadership skills and strategies to a diverse range of health care entities.

Health care administrators, also known as health care managers or health service managers, are responsible for the day-to-day operations of health care entities. They provide executive leadership and oversight in policies and procedures, strategic vision and direction, finance and costs, and quality of care. A Master of Health Administration degree equips graduates with a wide range of knowledge, skills, and competencies essential for the provision of effective health care.
