Healthcare Administration degrees abroad

Healthcare administrators oversee the coordination and delivery of healthcare services in a range of clinical settings, like hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and local surgeries.

Programs equip students with the professional, organizational, and business skills needed to manage healthcare facilities. As well as gaining a comprehensive understanding of the healthcare sector, you’ll learn how to manage budgets, train staff, maintain accurate records, comply with healthcare laws, and uphold professional and ethical standards.

With the organization of healthcare systems varying across the world, studying abroad is an eye-opening experience. You’ll gain a rich and global understanding of the field that cannot be achieved through textbook learning alone. With international experience under your belt, you’ll be ready to launch a career anywhere you choose.

Healthcare Administration program structure

You can study a bachelor’s degree in healthcare administration over three or four years. The length of your program will depend on where you choose to study and whether you complete an industry placement. Although programs are offered as either a BA or BSc, the content of these classifications is largely the same.

Students hoping to earn their undergraduate degree in the US will follow the liberal arts model of education. Before majoring in healthcare administration, you’ll need to complete two years of general education.

Many employers prefer to recruit graduates who’ve earned a master’s degree. To enroll in these one or two-year programs, you’ll need to have a bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject like business, nursing, or management.

Doctorate programs are available for students looking to gain the highest formal qualification possible. Research-based PhD programs take a minimum of three years to complete, but they can last up to five years.

You’ll be taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and practical workshops where you’ll deal with real-world case studies. Here’s an idea of some of the core modules you can expect to study:

  • Management of healthcare organizations
  • Organizational behavior and leadership in healthcare settings
  • Maintaining quality and professional standards in healthcare
  • Financial management for healthcare organizations
  • Legal and ethical principles in healthcare
  • Healthcare marketing
  • Health information technology and systems
  • Human resource management
