WCU Health Administration & Education ranked No. 9 nationwide

Forbes Advisor has ranked William Carey University’s Health Administration and Education (HAE) doctoral program No. 9 in the nation as part of its “Best of 2024” ranking of upper education programs.

“We are extremely proud of this recognition of our Health Administration and Education program. It’s an honor to be listed as one of the top ten in the nation – and well-deserved by our hard-working HAE team,” said Dr. Janet Williams, WCU vice president of health sciences.

Best known for its coverage of business, finance and investment, Forbes debuted education rankings with its “America’s Top Colleges” list in 2008. The Forbes Advisor branch assesses various aspects of education with a goal of helping consumers make the best individual financial choices.

Forbes Advisor determines its rankings of the nation’s top doctoral programs using data from the National Center for Education Statistics about credibility, affordability, student outcomes and student experience.

“This recognition helps distinguish us from other online programs that award healthcare administration degrees,” said HAE Program Director Dr. Shanda Bourne-Price.

“While our program emphasizes both administration and education, our graduates occupy many roles within the healthcare field. The program is designed to meet the diverse needs of healthcare professionals – providing them with the tools necessary to succeed as leaders in the healthcare industry.”

William Carey University’s HAE doctoral degree is a hybrid program that combines online and in-person components to accommodate the schedules of working healthcare professionals.

A hallmark of the program is its guided dissertation process, which gives students personalized feedback during their research journey, facilitating the development of research, methodology, and critical thinking skills needed to excel as educators, administrators, and researchers.
