Health-Care MBAs See Brighter Future

Health-Care MBAs See Brighter Future

Dan Macsai / BusinessWeek

Looking to sidestep the gloomy job market? Consider getting an MBA in health management.

Recent findings from Moody’s Investors Service indicate that President-elect Barack Obama’s health-care proposals, if enacted, could galvanize the industry. The plans, which call for expanding the availability of health insurance and reducing health-care costs, could also increase demand for health-care management jobs.

“If more people have health insurance, more people can get non-emergency service and hospitals can better cover their costs,” says Lisa Goldstein, a senior vice-president at Moody’s who has analyzed the health-care industry for 18 years. “This is an attractive time for students to consider careers in health management.”
