Health Care Careers in Management
The health care industry and the people it serves face serious challenges in the coming years. Related organizations will need strong, future-focused leadership to ensure efficient and high-quality service is available to a constantly growing field.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in the health care management sector will grow faster than the average over the coming years, and job opportunities will be good, especially for applicants with work experience in health care and strong business management skills.*
Employers include public and private insurers, managed health care organizations (HMOs, PPOs), medical and pharmaceutical suppliers, health-care providers and policy-making organizations. While a health care manager in a large organization will typically have a master’s degree, a bachelor’s degree is generally appropriate for entry-level positions.
Health Care Career preparation: experience and education
Employers prefer candidates with experience in the health care industry and strong academic preparation. At Globe University, we worked with employers to ensure our programs provide the necessary skills and knowledge. We offer two programs for future leaders, so you can decide what health care career you want to pursue:
Both programs are offered through our online college as well as at select campus locations. Faculty are seasoned industry professionals, and coursework emphasizes practical, hands-on experiences.
Take advantage of college career services
