The Management Fundamentals Certificate addresses the need for basic management education for clinical and administrative professionals in the health care industry. Most health care organizations face a crisis in the availability of qualified management talent. In the next decade, a significant proportion of current managers in these organizations are expected to retire. In addition, clinical professionals will be moving more into top management positions.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the health care industry is expected to add more jobs than any other field in the coming decade. Health care jobs in general are expected to increase by 14 percent and management roles by 18 percent between 2018 and 2028.
Additionally, jobs that require an MHA typically offer much-higher-than-average salaries. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the median pay for medical and health services managers in the U.S. for 2019 was $100,980 per year.
