The bachelor of science in healthcare management degree program prepares graduates for healthcare management and administrative careers within any healthcare facility or business that must stay current with healthcare laws and regulations. Examples of career paths for graduates include:

  • Hospital Administrator
  • Medical Office Manager
  • Health Service Manager

  • Healthcare Administrator

Work Environment

Careers in healthcare management/administration exist in hospitals, physician offices, clinics, outpatient care centers, insurance carriers, home healthcare organizations, and assisted long-term care facilities. While professionals in this career work primarily in an office setting, executive-level administrators may travel on occasion to oversee satellite offices. The typical work week for Healthcare Management careers extends beyond 40 hours, however professionals in the field are often rewarded with an excellent benefits and compensation package.

Career Advancement

Healthcare administration careers offer advancement and increased earning potential as the administrator takes on additional responsibilities. This can occur through promotion at the current employer or by accepting a position at a larger facility. Bachelor degree graduates with little or no industry experience typically start out as administrative assistants or department heads, while those with a master’s degree may enter the industry as an associate administrator or manager/supervisor of a department.
