Abstract

This study reports a national survey of American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) members and sheds light on preferences for graduate healthcare management education. The study identifies relative preferences for programs that best prepare students to become future healthcare executives. We found equal support for the MHA and a healthcare-focused MBA, with little support for multiple other types of degree programs. Preferences for leadership, creativity, finance, and communication skills were found, as well as support for competency-based education. The importance of accreditation is included, with program-level accreditation favored. This paper also explores institutions in healthcare and provides contextual background emphasizing changing economic conditions and subsequent impact on health management education.
