Rated one of the top health care programs in the United States, the Business School offers three unique degrees in health administration. Years ahead of the curve, these programs give graduates an accelerated track to high-level positions in the health care field. Understanding the rapidly increasing need for health care administrators, the programs are tailored to business-minded professionals in the industry. And in today's complex and dynamic environment, there may never be a better time to enter the field.
Employment in health care will continue to grow due to many contributing factors. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:
- Health care was one of the largest industries in 2008, providing 14.3 million jobs for wage and salary workers
- 10 of the 20 fastest-growing occupations are in the health care field
- Health care will generate 3.2 million new wage and salary jobs between 2008 and 2018, more than any other industry, largely in response to rapid growth in the elderly population
Reforms and continued efforts to improve health care quality will also contribute to growth. Managers are called on to improve the quality of care, create efficiencies and negotiate new ways of doing business as insurance companies and Medicare demand higher levels of accountability.
The University of Colorado Denver Business School offers three prestigious graduate programs: Health Administration – an MBA, an Executive MBA and a Master of Science degree. Each program is unique, but all provide the maximum benefit of a first-rate business education integrated with an industry specialization.
