Online MBA with Certificate in Healthcare Administration

In a competitive job market and an increasingly complex business landscape, differentiation is key for business professionals looking to take the next step in their careers. A diverse skillset, encompassing both traditional business competencies and a focused area of specialization, is essential for success.

That's why Champlain College has designed an MBA program that meets these needs: while it delivers the foundation of business knowledge expected of a traditional business degree program, it also gives students the opportunities to hone their skills with a concentration in a specific subject area.

An MBA with a concentration in healthcare administration will provide you with technical and business skills in addition to the essential knowledge you need as a mid-career healthcare professional to enhance and advance your career, transforming you into a truly well-rounded business professional.

Benefits of Earning a Graduate Certificate Alongside Your MBA

While a traditional MBA can be a very valuable tool to help position you for success in your career, there are many benefits to earning a graduate certificate in healthcare administration alongside your MBA. Individuals who get an MBA with a concentration in accounting will graduate with experience in their area of specialization (and a credential to demonstrate it). They'll also be able to work with established, experienced business and accounting professionals. And they'll be able to differentiate themselves in today's competitive job market, increasing their chances of finding a new job or obtaining a promotion in their current organization. Getting an MBA with a graduate certificate in HCA is the best way to advance in your healthcare career.
