Though healthcare is one of the fastest-growing industries in the nation, employers say leadership candidates are missing three key skills to fill current positions: evaluation, data analysis, and presentation.
At American University, every degree in the School of Professional & Extended Studies focuses on career-readiness and filling industry skill gaps as identified by employers nationwide — meaning your tuition investment is an investment in your career. In the MS in Healthcare Management, you'll explore techniques to manage the incredibly fast-paced changes commonplace in the industry and maintain an excellent level of patient care and outcomes while remaining profitable.
You'll master those top three skills and prepare to compete for one of the 2.4 million new healthcare jobs that will be created in the U.S. by 2026.1
