About

Overview

More than ever before, healthcare needs business leadership for the new and rapidly evolving demands of the 21st century.

Due to an aging population and healthcare reform, healthcare is the fastest-growing sector in the U.S. economy. Much has changed in the way healthcare-related businesses and facilities interact with care providers, patients and the government in the past several years, and more changes are on the way. This degree will help you navigate those changes and lead healthcare facilities and businesses into the future.

Career Paths

The healthcare system is booming, and healthcare administration careers are keeping pace. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, those in healthcare administration can expect job growth of 23% from 2012 to 2022, which is much higher than the average for all occupations. Much of this growth is expected to stem from a healthcare system that will see increased demand from an aging baby boomer population, as well as technology that allows patients to live longer lives. This demand will mean more hospitals, clinics, physicians and other healthcare professionals are needed, and that means more health administrators will be called upon to make sure everything runs smoothly.
