GWU’s Online Healthcare Management Program Earns Top National Ranking

Gardner-Webb University’s Godbold School of Business recently earned national recognition for having one of the “25 Best Bachelor’s in Healthcare Administration Online” degrees in the country.

The list is compiled each year by TheBestColleges.org, a Seattle-based company that provides information on quality educational programs around the nation. Gardner-Webb ranked No. 16 out of 25 programs across the U.S.

"This national recognition of our online degree in healthcare management affirms our persistent quest for excellence,” shared Mischia Taylor, dean of the Godbold School of Business. “We offer a range of great programs, and rankings like this one help us attract and retain outstanding students in a variety of disciplines."

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

With healthcare making up nearly 16 percent of the gross national product as a $1.7 trillion industry in America, 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 2022.

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.
