"As demands for healthcare and health-related services grow in the U.S, so too does the demand for skilled administrators and managers/ leaders," said the article's lead researcher, Raj Dash.
"The service demand increase is due to any number of reasons, including an aging American population, a growing population, new illnesses, outbreaks, etc. Whatever the reason, the demand for these abilities in healthcare professionals is high enough that the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts in their Occupational Outlook Handbook (OOH) Web pages that job growth for some skills will be 15-17% between 2014-2024 (and as high as 23% for the period 2012-2022).
"For anyone looking for advanced career opportunities in healthcare, this college rankings article presents the lowest-cost online masters degrees in Healthcare Administration and Management. Use it as a starting point for finding a suitable school for graduate programs."
College rankings for this article were compiled with data from NCES (National Center for Education Statistics), a bureau of the Dept. of Education (http://nces.ed.gov/). We queried for graduate institutions that grant degrees in Healthcare Administration or Management on a distance basis, filtered out colleges that are based in U.S. protectorate nations, sorted by increasing out-of-state tuition, filtered out doctoral-only and certificate-only colleges, and filtered for active online masters degree programs. This resulted in our list of the 25 most affordable masters programs in healthcare administration and management. Similar topical rankings will be published at AffordableSchools (http://affordableschools.net) -- a college search and rankings site with a focus on affordable colleges and programs -- on a regular basis.
