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?
In a response to the recent shifts in health care, the MBA in Health Care Administration will equip students to professionally deal with the pace of change in health care today as they learn to manage the systems and resources of a clinic, hospital department, or long-term care facility. Students will also learn to consider the spirituality of health care and its applications. The MBA in Health Care Administration degree will meet a drastically increasing need, as jobs for medical health and services managers are expected to grow by 22% from 2010 to 2020.*
The traditional MBA holds its international reputation for being one of the best academic educational programs for generalized leadership in most organizations. An MBA in Health Care Administration at CCU allows for this leader to address health care issues with expertise in: bio-ethics; accreditation and legal requirements; complex payer systems; and operational strategies that address mission, cost, and various health care revenue streams. The program is 39 credits and can be completed in two years, with each course lasting five weeks.
