Overview

Healthcare is one of the fastest growing fields in the United States and the need for strong, educated healthcare administrators is at an all time high. Earning an MBA in Healthcare Administration from Carroll Online can enhance your current career or allow you to transition to a new one. 

Do you work, or want to work, in healthcare? Have you wanted to work in the medical field, maybe even felt called to it, but working in a traditional medical role (doctor, nurse, or PA) didn’t appeal to you? 

Working as a healthcare administrator allows you to make a difference in the lives of both the medical and health services professionals you oversee and also the lives of the patients in your workplace. Without great healthcare administrators, doctors and nurses would not be able to provide the best care possible for their patients. Healthcare Administrators act as agents of change that impact an entire healthcare facility or system.

Carroll University’s online MBA in Healthcare Administration provides you with the skills and  knowledge to ensure success in your career. You’ll take classes on legal issues, ethics, information management, and finance, all taught through a healthcare perspective, so you’ll be able to take on any healthcare issue and have the knowledge you need to solve it. That’s one of the key highlights of the program, according to Dr. Katie McCarthy, one of the instructors in the program, is that it gives a “systemic view of healthcare. It’s important to understand the system so you can understand your resources, then you’re able to handle whatever comes next.”  

You won’t just have earned an MBA in Healthcare Administration, you’ll have the knowledge, skills and practical application to back up your degree.

Our program is designed to pack as much information into as short a time as possible so you can get started on the next phase of your career. On average, our students graduate within two years. The program is structured in eleven 8-week courses, six times a year, but it is possible to double up on courses and graduate in less time.
