Why an MBA in Healthcare Administration from JBU?

The American College of Healthcare Executives calls healthcare management a “hidden” career since it is one of the last things to come to mind when most people think of medical services. The importance of this work is undeniable and tremendously influential on the availability, accessibility, and quality of healthcare in our nation’s communities. Within the healthcare system, you see the gaps in it and want to affect change and improve the process but don’t feel you have the ability or enough influence. JBU's Healthcare Administration program will teach you to empower healthcare experts to affect change at a higher level and improve the patient experience.
