Laboratory Administration (M.S.)
John Carroll University’s Boler School of Business is pleased to announce a new Master of Science in Laboratory Administration (MSLA) program, developed jointly with the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. This exciting and exclusive program provides its graduates with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively run a laboratory where quality with profitability is the primary performance metric.
Why Boler MS in Laboratory Administration?
Careers in the medical field are booming. People are living longer and medical technology is improving at an unprecedented pace-creating the need for highly skilled professionals.
While experienced laboratory technologists are the preferred candidates for laboratory management positions, many organizations now require (or strongly encourage) a graduate degree as the gateway for these leadership positions. Unlike other general graduate business programs, the MSLA degree provides the skills necessary to tackle the challenges and opportunities specific to a laboratory setting.
The Master of Science in Laboratory Administration is designed to prepare laboratory personnel to manage and grow a laboratory as a business. The program focuses on practical skills and includes a series of in-depth case studies designed to address real-world issues and challenges found in a laboratory setting.
