GWU Undergraduate Program Achieves Ranking in Top 25

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University’s Godbold School of Business recently earned national recognition for having one of the “25 Best Online Bachelor’s in Healthcare Management Degree Programs” in the country.

The list is compiled each year by TheBestSchools.org, a Chicago-based company that provides information on quality educational programs around the nation. Gardner-Webb ranked 13th on the list.

“Our faculty in the Godbold School of Business takes pride in offering excellent online programs,” shared Mischia Taylor, dean and instructor of business. “Our class sizes are small, which allows us the opportunity to build relationships with our students, preparing them for successful careers.”

Institutions were ranked based on institution types, accreditation, affiliations, faculty strength, faculty-student ratio, admission rate, average net price of the college, and other information gathered from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS).

With healthcare spending in the United States growing last year to $3.3 trillion, it’s no surprise that one of the fastest growing sectors is healthcare administration. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 70,000 health management and administrative positions will be created by 2026.

Gardner-Webb’s healthcare management degree is designed to prepare students to obtain management positions in emerging healthcare fields. Faculty members offer expertise in a variety of disciplines, interests and industries. Small classroom settings offer one-on-one access to mentorship. Healthcare management objectives include ethical perspectives across the curriculum, quantitative technique application, human relations management, organizational operations, critical thinking and problem solving.
