Trinity University's health care administration department has been named the top business graduate school in the nation by Modern Healthcare magazine.

Trinity's graduate program ranked first in the nation, ahead of (No. 2) University of North Carolina, (No. 3) University of Michigan, (No. 4) the University of Houston at Clear Lake, and (No. 5-tied) the University of Colorado at Denver and Virginia Commonwealth University.

Health care professionals either trained or mentored by Trinity faculty are currently leading some of the largest health care systems in the country. Nationwide, 2,000 graduates of the program serve as mentors to current students. Nearly 100 graduates hold leadership positions in hospitals and other health care settings in just Bexar County alone.

"We have an exceptional faculty, gifted students, and one of the best alumni networks in the country," says Ed Schumacher, professor and department chair.

The program has been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education since 1969. Graduate students are only required to spend nine days on campus while they complete their Master of Science degree in 23 months. The program allows students to continue working while they finish their studies.
