Prepare yourself for a field of opportunity — then find yours

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the health care industry expects to add 5.6 million jobs by the year 2020. Becoming a health administrator, however, requires proper education. University of Phoenix offers curricula that are aligned with industry standards and taught by faculty members who’ve spent an average of 19 years putting those standards into practice in business settings.

University of Phoenix is a member of the American College of Healthcare Executives Higher Education Network (ACHE/HEN), the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) and the Association of University Programs in Health Administration (AUPHA).
