One of the major goals of the Master of Business Administration in healthcare administration from South University Online is to have students understand the impact of healthcare and healthcare management on society and on the systems within the community. The program focuses on all aspects of healthcare management but also allows students to understand the advanced concepts of business management and apply that information to the hospital and healthcare facilities in which they work.
Typically students will complete courses on financial management and planning for healthcare facilities, human resource management and development, business leadership and management, marketing strategies and how they apply to hospitals or healthcare facilities, politics, economics and legal and ethical considerations in patient care and health care systems. Organizational efficiency and structure as well as creative thinking and logical decision making will be emphasized throughout the program.
