Healthcare Management: A Burgeoning IndustryWritten by Alexa K. Apallas

At AIU Online, students receive same services and support that they might find at a traditional campus. They can access campus “Cybrary” (that’s AIU Online’s term for its cyber-library) and get career guidance from Career Services Center, where a Career Services Advisor can assist them with a cover letter, their résumé, and interviewing tips. Students earn a degree from a regionally accredited university and may even qualify for financial aid to help pay for their studies, if eligible. And contrary to a popular misconception, Hoffman says, students have as much, if not more, interaction with their professors than they would at a traditional university. While interaction might not be face-to-face, students can communicate with their teachers via email or online chats. Stein says she really gets to know her students personally because she responds to 10 to 15 student emails a day, and she holds two live online chats per week that allow students to ask questions or clarify assignments. The chats are archived for students who are unable to log on at designated time. Students interact with their peers as well, by conducting discussions on a class bulletin board. AIU Online is also geared toward adult learners. Instead of a traditional final exam or paper, students work on projects that are focused on real-world deliverables. The AIU Online program is ideal for career changers who can’t afford to give up steady job they currently hold but are eager to explore new career options. Students on virtual campus can earn a Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Management in just 13 months,* provided they have already earned an associate’s degree or its equivalent. The specialized curriculum includes courses offering an overview of healthcare industry, ethical and legal aspects of healthcare and healthcare management, and statistical analysis and economics in a global environment. Students seeking an MBA in Healthcare Management can earn that degree in 10 months. They will study topics like health policy, global financial management, systems in healthcare, and leadership and ethics for managers. “The healthcare management program is especially attractive to students who are already in healthcare field and want to move their careers in a new direction,” says Stein. But even students who are new to field can find success with an online degree from AIU Online. By studying healthcare management, students can open door to a career in a fast-growing, well-paying new field, and they can do it all from comfort of their own computer screen.
*The 13-month Bachelor’s degree is a 2+2 program and assumes that all associate-level requirements have been met through an Associate degree or equivalent.
American InterContinental University is accredited by Commission on Colleges of Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award Associate, Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees.
