I can actually go to my state university for free. But Walden helped me get to the level I’m at now and I would not trade Walden for any other university.
Four of my friends all enrolled because my husband and I bragged so much about Walden's mission, the success of the students after they graduated, and the rigorous learning experience.
The mentorship at Walden has been the greatest value. It’s consistent, ongoing, empowering, and encouraging. It’s a network that has provided a wealth of resources.
Individuals who choose to earn an MBA with a specialization in healthcare management can enter or work in management and leadership roles within in health organizations, particularly in the areas of financial and operations management. This is also a great choice if you are currently in healthcare or want to move to a healthcare field. Many leadership roles within healthcare fields—such as nursing, medical, and mental health—are ideal for practitioners but require management and business expertise and experience. By earning an MBA with a specialization in healthcare management, individuals with a technical or clinical background in healthcare can gain the management knowledge and skills necessary to gain career mobility and move into mid-level and senior positions in organizational management and leadership.
Walden's Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a healthcare management specialization combines the academic training needed to successfully manage the financial and operational components of a healthcare organization.
