Career Opportunities

The outlook in health related careers is strong and our students find no shortage of opportunities. For the past five years, at least 95% of Sloan graduates have found positions before or shortly after graduation.

The majority of recent graduates have taken management positions with hospitals and health care systems, management consulting firms and managed care and insurance organizations. In addition, the program has a good record of placing students in hospital fellowships. Other areas in which recent graduates are employed include long term care, pharmaceuticals, banking, research and policy related organizations.

Salaries vary within the industry, but in general the opportunities and compensation for men and women who have earned an MHA degree are competitive with those for graduates of leading professional master’s degree programs.
