The Master of Business Administration degree provides students with skills in the core areas of business, including accounting, finance, marketing, human resources, operations management, and others. With the health services administration concentration, students are able to learn the fundamentals of business while also focusing their education on healthcare; this degree is comparable to a Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree. Individuals with expertise in health services administration are often responsible for overseeing healthcare departments and personnel, and even entire healthcare facilities.
MBA programs generally last two years. To apply to an MBA in health services administration, students may need to have at least bachelor’s degree in a related field. Some programs may also require relevant work experience. Coursework does not only include core MBA classes, but also courses specific to the health services administration concentration, such as managed care, facilities management, healthcare administration, medical terminology, and patient relations. Holders of this degree have the necessary skills to take on management or supervisory roles in medical facilities, government health departments, insurance companies, Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs), non-profit organizations, or other healthcare-related entities.
