Viterbo’s health care management degree completion program is an online program that allows students to complete a Bachelor of Business Administration degree using previously earned college credit, military credit, or credit for prior learning. Most students enter this program with 30+ prior college credits in business or health care disciplines. Health care management represents the study of business in health care settings, allowing students to build upon their practical experience and skills while expanding upon knowledge in legal and ethical issues, quality improvement, marketing, and economic aspects of health care.

Health Care Management (transfer agreement/degree completion) Major (Bachelor of Business Administration)

The Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree must have been earned after May 2006 for Western Technical College (WTC) graduates or after May 2013 for Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) graduates. Students may not begin these specifically-articulated transfer programs or be considered a student in these programs until the A.A.S. degree has been completed and documented on the technical college transcript. A student who did not complete the A.A.S. degree could instead complete the requirements of the general major, and any completed courses of the A.A.S. would count toward the major, but in order to come into this articulated transfer agreement program, the A.A.S. must be completed prior to transfer to Viterbo. The student cannot be dually enrolled.  

  • Core curriculum and mission seminars (24-32 credits) – see core curriculum section of catalog
  • Major requirements (30 credits) – see below
  • Final degree requirements – a minimum of 120 college level credits, minimum of 30 credits at the 300/400 level

Transfer courses and waivers and/or substitutions could modify the required credit total in the core curriculum and major.
