New Website Explores the Best in Online Healthcare MBA Degrees

Today's healthcare system is a business -- a complex, dynamic and multi-billion dollar business. To meet the challenges posed by an aging population, rising expenditures and changing government involvement, the medical field is in great need of motivated leaders with the business acumen and education to keep healthcare services in the United States running smoothly. A Healthcare MBA provides graduates with the training and knowledge necessary to fill this important role. Like many students in standard MBA programs, prospective healthcare MBA students are often working professionals already employed full-time. While previous business experience is invaluable toward success as a healthcare MBA degree candidate, it can be difficult for working students to manage an on-campus academic schedule. In light of this difficulty, BestHealthcareMBA.com, a website that provides career and educational information to healthcare MBA students, has recently debuted a ranking list of the top 10 best online healthcare MBA degree programs.

In compiling the list, factors such as school ranking and reputation, admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and curricular breadth and depth were all considered.

Others are online-only institutions that have long be at the forefront of providing distance-based education to adult students.
