NEW YORK, August 28, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Noodle Partners, the nation's fastest-growing Online Program Manager (OPM), is announcing a new partnership with New York University's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service (NYU Wagner) to launch a groundbreaking online graduate program—an Online Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree program that will begin its inaugural cohort in January 2019.
Recent data from the U.S. Department of Labor predicts a 20 percent increase in employment of medical and health service managers by 2026, indicating a strong marketplace demand for highly skilled healthcare administrators. The new Online MHA expands NYU Wagner's existing degree programs by providing flexible access to the advanced knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in this field. Students with an MHA go on to careers in healthcare systems and hospitals, physicians' offices, nursing homes, home healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, and many other contexts across the healthcare sector.
"Building on our strong reputation in healthcare management education, the new Online Master of Health Administration will prepare students to lead high-performing healthcare organizations and improve healthcare across the United States," said Sherry Glied, Dean of NYU Wagner. "Through our collaboration with Noodle Partners, we are excited to implement the latest technologies to create a cutting-edge online learning environment for our students."
The online opportunity builds upon NYU Wagner's on-campus healthcare management focused program, ranked No. 1 in Health Policy & Management by the 2018 US News and World Report among all graduate schools of public affairs. By leveraging the internal strengths of the school's distinctive resources, including its expert faculty, large and impressive alumni network, and multi-disciplinary approach, Noodle Partners will help to build a preeminent online health administration master's degree program. Additionally, Noodle Partners will add expertise in key functional areas such as digital marketing, student recruitment, instructional design, and student support to help bring the program online less expensively than traditional OPMs, with greater agility and in better alignment with university's goals.
"In addition to being one of the largest private universities in the United States, NYU is a top-ranked institution of higher learning that attracts and cultivates some of the most influential students," said John Katzman, CEO of Noodle Partners. "We're proud to collaborate with NYU Wagner to develop and deliver innovative online programs to students who want to transform their careers and have an effective and lasting impact on the public good."
