What will you become?

We work to educate and form graduates who are highly skilled and eager to meet the future needs of our ever-changing world.

For nearly 100 years, FranU (formerly known as Our Lady of the Lake College), has been educating and training healthcare professionals to be servant leaders. We focus not only on the what and the how, but we also evolve the why and the who. For us, it is about much more than making a living. Our core values tell us that education has to be about making a life. The lives that our students impact and whom they become are our mission.

  • Bachelor of Business Administration

    The Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) Program educates and forms ethical and proficient business professionals who serve and lead in manners consistent with Franciscan values.

    The program provides students an understanding of the major business functions including general business, accounting, management, marketing, analytics, entrepreneurship, and health service administration. Students can select one of four curriculum tracks (General Business, Management, Analytics, and Health Administration) that best fits their vocational path.

  • Certificate in Population Health

    Population Health is defined as an art and a science that focuses on the health outcomes of a specific group of people and it is an approach that identifies social determinants of health, establishes desired health outcomes and implements policies and programs that improve the health of the entire human population.

    Population Health Management is a growing segment within the healthcare delivery system and an important component of healthcare reform. With a recognized need for prevention and health promotion, Population Health Management is emerging as a model for reducing costs in healthcare and influencing healthier lifestyles.

    The certificate program for Population Health offers a curriculum that addresses the knowledge and skills that healthcare professionals need to lead culture change and system re-design for advancing Population Health.

  • Master of Health Administration

    The Master of Health Administration (MHA) program is designed in a flexible online format to prepare students for careers as innovative and successful leaders in a variety of healthcare settings.

    Healthcare, one of the largest industries in this country, continues to grow. The need for healthcare professionals with advanced knowledge of healthcare operations and quality performance systems is increasing. Jobs for health services managers and leaders are projected to grow 17% by 2024. The MHA was developed to meet the needs of these job demands and the educational and professional goals of the individuals who fill these jobs. The program focuses on education of the best practices needed to provide “world class” healthcare services that are affordable and accessible.
