Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 19, 2017
A leader in higher education and prominent member of the Charlotte health community, Queens University of Charlotte recently began recruitment efforts for the inaugural cohort of its online Master of Health Administration. The program’s curriculum arms students with the skills, knowledge and expertise to approach and address the unique nuances healthcare organizations face using a business-minded and operational perspective. Students are prepared to lead the implementation of sound business practices that support healthier organizations, patients and communities.
Healthcare to date is America’s fastest growing industry with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicting 9.8 million new jobs by 2024. This rapid growth will force healthcare facilities and organizations of all sizes to expand personnel across many organizational levels. As a result, there is a critical need for credentialed leaders with the foresight to anticipate industry change, manage cross-functional teams and position healthcare organizations for continued growth.
Offered exclusively online, the Master of Health Administration provides healthcare professionals with the targeted skills needed to not only advance, but also thrive.
“The great thing about Queens online MHA program is that students come from a variety of professional and educational backgrounds, but all share a passion for the field of healthcare leadership. ... This creates a distinct learning environment for students to learn and grow, guided by our distinguished faculty,” said Dr. Maureen Walsh Koricke, program director for the Master of Health Administration. “This creates an enriching, innovative and engaging learning experience. Students learn just as much from one another as they do from our distinguished faculty.”
Queens prides itself on its applied approach to learning. Students in the online MHA program will benefit from course topics and discussions that are infused with real-world scenarios. While theoretical discussion plays a part in the curriculum, applied learning is the primary focus.
