FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Nurses and other healthcare practitioners can benefit from earning a healthcare administration MBA. The advanced education in finance, accounting, human resource management and other business functions complements their clinical knowledge, equipping them for executive-level leadership.

In addition, the targeted courses in a healthcare MBA offer in-depth exploration of issues facing the healthcare industry, from ethical, legal and regulatory considerations to the impact of technology.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that the average annual salary for medical and health services managers is $127,980 per year ($61.53 per hour).* Salaries will vary depending on your experience, seniority, and the local job market. Discover the average healthcare management salary by state.

Healthcare management is the practice of administering the financial and operational aspects of delivering healthcare in hospitals, clinics, physician’s offices and other healthcare institutions.

Healthcare management professionals act as a bridge between clinicians and upper management, insurers, and other third parties to ensure patients receive safe, cost-effective care that complies with laws and regulations.

Absolutely, an MBA is worth it! Earning a healthcare management MBA offers you the opportunity to develop broad-based, executive-level business management skills as well as specialized leadership skills for healthcare. In addition to gaining knowledge employers in healthcare are looking for, you’ll also hone your strategic planning abilities, strengthen your professional communication skills, and develop your personal leadership style.

Earning your MBA in Healthcare Management at Herzing is even more worth it, thanks to online flexibility, quality course content, and the opportunity to pursue another concentration that interests you.

Many traditional MBA programs can take two years to complete. Herzing University’s MBA in Healthcare Management can take as few as 20 months to complete if you study full-time, thanks to year-round online learning.

An MBA is a Master of Business Administration. An MHA is a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration.

An MHA program prepares leaders specifically for the healthcare industry. MHA graduates can work in hospitals, care homes, and other related facilities.

An MBA in Healthcare Management teaches a more versatile skillset for business-oriented professionals. Students still receive targeted knowledge and practical skills for leadership in the healthcare setting, but also graduate with broader knowledge that can apply to many industries.

With Herzing you also have the option to pursue a dual concentration. You can make yourself even more competitive by taking on additional coursework in topics such as technology management, human resources or accounting—whatever best suits your personal strengths and professional goals.

Discover the main difference between MBA vs. Master of Science degrees and gain a better understanding of what degree is right for you.
