Did you know that in the next two decades, there will be more than 70 million people over the age of 65?  Plus, life expectancy in the US has increased 15 years since the 1930's.  What do all these numbers mean?  

The need for senior care services is on the rise in a big way.  That's why today's senior care leaders need a keen understanding of strategy and finance in addition to keeping current in their knowledge and expertise in senior care services.  The Senior Care Management Executive Certificate is designed to address this need.

  • Apply analytical tools to determine tradeoffs across economic options.
  • Gain insight into managing people, processes and organizations for strategic transformation in senior care.
  • Best practices of senior care providers nationwide.
  • Participating in this program will give you the strategic and organizational skills you need to navigate today's rapidly changing senior health care environment as well as increase your understanding of the current and anticipated pressures of senior health care management.
