According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of medical and health services managers is expected to grow by 22 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boomer population ages and people remain active later in life, the healthcare industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services. Now is a great time to obtain your Master’s degree and take your career to the next level.
