COVID-19 increases demand for healthcare industry professionals
Never in history have five letters and two numbers wreaked havoc on people and economies, as COVID-19 has done. Suddenly, we can’t be sure of anything anymore – our health, jobs, our children’s education, daily routines, and what the future will be like for our loved ones. However, there are some key developments amidst the global chaos that, if we are agile and committed enough, we can use to build flourishing, secure futures.
For instance, there is a growing, critical need for forward-thinking professionals to chart new pathways for worldwide healthcare industries. An MBA in Healthcare Management
from REGENT BUSINESS SCHOOL, plugs into this demand, empowering healthcare executives with the latest knowledge and skills in business and hospital management to overcome the extraordinary challenges facing today’s healthcare industry.
Expanding field that offers stability and growth. Worldwide, governments including South Africa, are building more hospitals and setting up additional healthcare facilities and systems to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. This inevitably calls for more professionals who are trained to handle healthcare systems with a comprehensive understanding of the different dimensions of the industry.
It’s a smart upskill or reskill: You may be a parent who wants to give your child a better life; you may be a high-flying healthcare executive who longs for “something bigger and better”; or you may be a socially-driven citizen who’s determined to create a better, safer world. Upskilling or reskilling with an MBA in Healthcare Management opens up unlimited potential and possibilities to do better and be better. The qualification arms you with knowledge and skills to lead and manage health professionals, and health systems and services, boosting employability prospects.
Make a difference. Healthcare managers and leaders pave the way from public health and community preventive services, to primary healthcare, emergency health services, hospital services, and rehabilitation and palliative care, to tertiary level healthcare services.

Students are empowered with high level analytical and conceptual skills, as well as practical knowledge and insights – all of which are must-haves for making critical, informed decisions in the healthcare sector.
