Advance Your Career with a Healthcare Master's Degree

Megan Malugani, Monster Contributing Writer

Preparing for Your Administrative Career

“Regardless of which master’s degree you pursue, you can enjoy a top-notch education and go on to build a successful healthcare management career,” says Thomas Dolan, PhD, president and CEO of the American College of Healthcare Executives. “Just make sure your program is accredited by the [Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education] and combines both business and healthcare knowledge.”

“Very few employers will argue about what your master’s degree is in,” says Susan Odegaard Turner, PhD, founder of healthcare consultancy Turner Healthcare Associates. However, previous healthcare industry experience is becoming increasingly important. To land many healthcare management jobs, you need more than just a relevant master’s degree. “You need some firsthand knowledge of the daily grind in a hospital or healthcare facility,” Turner says.
