A Leighton School general business degree provides you with a broad understanding of fundamental business concepts, including finance, marketing and management. You'll be equipped with the business skills you need to help your company determine its priorities, coordinate multiple projects and meet its business goals.

As a Leighton School health care management major, you'll learn budgeting, planning, and cost control strategies for healthcare organizations, as well as the human resource skills needed to direct, coordinate and supervise the work of health care employees.

I’ve gained a wide variety of first-hand experience in different health care settings in my classes.
