Healthcare Administration is #1 "Loved Degree" in Recent Report

Quick, what are the college majors most likely to get you hired in 2014 and beyond? While most on the list – including Education, Business, Communications and Computer Science – are familiar standbys, the degree in the top spot may surprise you.

According to a recent report from Yahoo Education, the current number one degree that employers love is Healthcare Administration – a fixture here at Concordia University-Portland.

“Healthcare administration will continue to grow – specifically as the provisions of the ACA (Affordable Care Act) continue to roll out over the next several years,” says Kimberly Patterson, career consultant at UnConventional HR. Patterson cites the aging baby boomer population’s need for care as another big “pro” for majoring in this field.
