According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), http://www.bls.gov, job opportunities for medical and health services administrators are expected to grow significantly faster than the average for all occupations through the year 2014.

The M.S. curriculum presupposes no previous academic training in business. The curriculum is designed to provide the technical and behavioral competencies as defined by the Health Leadership Competency Model, Version 2 developed by the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL, 2005).
