Career Outlook for Healthcare MBA Graduates
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers is projected to grow 17 percent through 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations.
As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the overall healthcare industry is seeing an increase in demand for medical services.
