Concordia University is seeing so many students choose a major combining health care and business they built a state-of-the-art building to capitalize on the trend. Students are excited to get their hands on the new space.

“Honestly, it’s phenomenal,” said Katie Sanborn.

Sanborn is an undergrad in the health care administration program. In the last three years, Concordia saw enrollment in its master’s program double. This building isn’t just for students in health care administration.

“It’s kind of a different model that doesn’t exist,” said Erik Hollander, an assistant professor of business.

Hollander, also the director of the health care administration program, said the building is designed for students to learn from each other.

“It’s the merging and collision of health and business. It’s awesome,” said Hollander.
