There are many universities that offer business management minors or two-year programs, but Finlandia University provides a unique program that specializes in healthcare. The industry of healthcare is a vast and complex one that requires a deeper study. For example, your healthcare finance classes will have a completely different model than a regular business finance class. Throughout the program, you’ll dive into topics like legal and ethical healthcare issues, epidemiology, human resource management and so much more.
According to DiscoverHealthAdmin.org and the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job prospects for healthcare management graduates are very promising with job availability projected to increase by 20 percent from 2016 to 2026. The same groups also report that medical and health services managers earned a median salary of $89,350 in 2017, with the top 10 percent earning as much as $176,130.
Whether you’re a healthcare professional looking to enter the world of management, dream of getting your masters to become a CEO, or are an entrepreneur looking to open your own fitness studio, the Healthcare Management degree will lay the core foundation to get you there. You’ll be provided with business knowledge, but you’ll also be able to specifically understand how business works in the world of healthcare. Once you have this core foundation down, your opportunities are endless.
"Healthcare is something that's growing rapidly and it's not really going anywhere anytime soon because we know people need it. Also, healthcare is something I'm passionate about because I'm helping people. I always want to be that guy-- a helping hand. And I know that this job, eventually when I graduate, will get me places. And that's why I chose Healthcare Management."
The small school setting at FinnU provides an individualized approach to all healthcare management students. Rather than just sitting in class, taking notes, memorizing concepts or theories, you’ll be able to have deep discussions amongst faculty and classmates allowing you to actually understand the intricacies behind healthcare and how to manage the area you are working towards.
Transfer students can enter the program from community colleges or other institutions at various points. For example, students that graduate with a two-year degree in business or healthcare from another college have the opportunity to come to Finlandia to complete another two years with the healthcare management program to receive a four-year business degree with a healthcare focus.
Upon completion of the Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Management degree program, International School of Business graduates will be able to do the following:
