Healthcare Management Masters Programs in Louisiana

Situated in the southern region of the United States along the Gulf of Mexico and Mississippi River, Louisiana is considered the 31st most extensive and 25th most populous state in the nation with the largest city being New Orleans. Nicknamed the “Bayou State,” “Pelican State,” and the “Child of the Mississippi,” Louisiana is famous from coast to coast for its jazz music, crawfish, alligators, shrimp fishing, oil refineries, humid subtropical climate, Tabasco sauce, and great food inspired by the Cajun and French cultures. Despite being home to more than 4.4 million residents, the following is the only Master’s level program in Healthcare Management that is accredited by the CAHME in Louisiana.
