Health Care Leadership

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be an even bigger growth in healthcare employment because of an aging population. Medical and Health Service Manager positions are expected to grow at a monster rate of 32% from 2019-2029, which is faster than the average job growth rate.*

Valparaiso University’s Bachelor of Science in Health Care Leadership (HCL) will prepare leaders with the skills required to meet the evolving demands of a dynamic healthcare landscape.

IF THESE SKILLS ARE CALLING THE LEADER INSIDE OF YOU:

  • A willingness to make decisions and take responsibility for the outcome
  • A desire to coach, coordinate, and evaluate
  • The ability to lead, motivate, and inspire others

HEALTH CARE LEADERSHIP IS THE DEGREE FOR YOU!

Students also have the opportunity to begin early-entry graduate studies during their senior year. In one additional year, students can complete their master’s in health administration (MHA).

Health Care Leadership Supports Firsthand Learning

Connor Carmichael details his experience in the health care leadership program in the College of Nursing and Health Professions. Connor was able to job shadow one of his professors to gain a sense of the strategic planning integral to health care leadership.

“I think it’s important to gain that hands-on knowledge because some stuff you can’t teach in a classroom.”
