An online MBA in healthcare management helps to prepare aspiring healthcare managers by coupling specialized knowledge in healthcare with a general management education. Students learn the fundamentals of planning, evaluation and operation, as well as the intricacies and complexities of the healthcare system. Prospective students can expect to learn how to manage and lead organizations across the healthcare sector and about the political, economical, and financial environment in which healthcare is currently delivered.
Typical career options include leadership positions in hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, insurance companies, long-term care facilities, pharmaceutical companies, and more. Online MBA programs in Healthcare Management offer a combination of business and healthcare related courses. Some common classes include health sector economics, health systems management, healthcare law and policy, health economics and evaluation, and biopharmaceutical and medical device strategy, among others. In many cases, applicants are required to have a minimum of one year of work experience in the health care industry, though this varies from school to school.
