Press release from: Independence University

Salt Lake City, UT, Dec 15, 2009 – With an eye on the burgeoning growth of employment opportunities in healthcare services, Independence University now offers an MBA in Healthcare Administration. The program combines advanced business and healthcare concepts and prepares students for managerial roles in the field.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare was the largest industry in 2006 and the sector is set to generate three million jobs by 2016. Various factors contribute to this rapid growth in employment in healthcare-related fields. The number of baby boomers is increasing, creating a demand for healthcare professionals. Technological advances have increased the average life expectancy and survival rates of critically ill or injured patients, which has led to a robust growth in the number of home healthcare and nursing care facilities. Consequently abundant employment opportunities are expected to open up in hospitals, clinics, home care agencies, nursing and residential care facilities etc. for healthcare managers. Depending upon the setting, a healthcare manager can earn anywhere between $60,000 and $87,000.

The MBA in Healthcare Administration degree, offered by Independence University (IU), is aimed to impart business administration skills in a healthcare environment. The program would cover areas such as management, accounting, economics, information systems, and policy analysis. The students will learn how to evaluate business administration in a healthcare setting and participate as leaders in their fields. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution and at least one year of full time experience in a healthcare-related field is needed to be eligible for admission to this program.

Independence University, which is committed to providing continuing education for career advancement, offers this degree at distance and online. With no classroom lectures to attend and the flexibility to study at their own pace, students can continue to earn while they learn.

The university is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) and has been offering quality distance learning courses and online education degree programs for over 30 years.
