Health Care Careers Require Cutting-Edge Knowledge and Specialized Skills
With changes in the health care system, and growing numbers of people using it, the career outlook for individuals who specialize in this area is good. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, health care occupations are projected to grow 19 percent from 2014 to 2024*, much faster than the average for all occupations. This growth is expected due to an aging population and health insurance access. A specialization in health care administration prepares NCU graduates to help lead private or public sector entities as they navigate this challenging industry. Depending on the degree level you chose, your studies could encompass everything from research to strategic planning, comparative health care system analysis, and total quality management in health care. With an all doctoral faculty who are experts in health care administration, the instruction is designed to address the many political and regulatory changes taking place in the health care industry.

“The idea of having one instructor [and] one mentor per student was a little bit different than a lot of schools. I think it’s an advantage because I got to know many of my professors, and I felt that they took a genuine [interest] in my success. Having a person there helping you to answer any questions that you might have, to really motivate you when you need a little bit of motivation, I thought worked out very well for the NCU student-professor relationship.” - Joe Putulowski, PhD in Business Administration (2016)
