    Colorado Christian University seeks to give students a sense of leadership in the health care field by providing excellent education, small class sizes, and specialized training. In alignment with these goals, CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies has developed an MBA in Health Care Administration.

    The largest and most complex growing industry needs a new type of leader. In the last 24 months, the health care business has taken extreme turns with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. In addition, previous health care requirements – in conjunction with the ACA – will place new demands on physicians, senior leaders, directors, and those wanting to be the health care leaders of the future. Colorado Christian University's online MBA in Health Care Administration is for the working adult who is in leadership, or expects to be in a health care leadership role in the next 10 years. This degree will serve individuals in acute care settings, long-term care, accountable care organizations, public health care organizations, community based health care organizations, physician executives, health care policy makers, and more.

    Are you one of those leaders?
