Future Workforce Demands Shape New Programs at Antioch University Midwest
Healthcare Administration and Data Analytics concentration in Management now offered
In response to a strong demand in the emerging job market, Antioch University Midwest (AUM) recently launched Healthcare Administration and Data Analytics concentrations for students pursuing bachelor’s degrees and working professionals who embrace continuing education. These programs will also be available as professional certificates and can be taken individually. The new programs further enhance the AUM curriculum, geared towards adult learners, and have been described by Dr. Karen Schuster Webb, president of AUM, as “a reflection of their desire to be proactive and innovative.”
The Healthcare Administration program is designed to deliver pertinent and innovative approaches to the changing healthcare landscape. “Healthcare providers and affiliated businesses – doctors offices, hospitals, labs, outpatient surgery centers, long-term care facilities, insurance and managed-care companies – need Healthcare Administrators who understand the critical issues and trends in the healthcare industry and possess the leadership skills needed to oversee a successful office or practice,” noted Dr. Webb. The concentration is designed to fulfill that need and can be added as a concentration to either a Bachelor of Arts in Health and Wellness or Management.
The second concentration focuses on the heightened interest in the area of data analytics. “Students can expect to gain a better understanding of analytics tools, apply process and reporting techniques, and learn how best to wield the power of big data in smart ways,” said Dr. Bill Hochstettler, professor of Data Analytics at AUM. The program’s demand is a reflection of communication technology trends. “We are meeting that demand with effective and ethical approaches to savvy business empowerment,” he added.
Antioch University Midwest’s certificate programs can be counted as academic credit and are carefully designed to increase knowledge in given fields, advance careers and expand skill sets. Taking a year or less to complete, the programs serve as a tremendous benefit to working professionals and students alike.
