To help meet the growing demand for business leaders with specialization for the healthcare industry, WGU created its Bachelor of Science in Business–Healthcare Management. Curriculum includes courses in business strategy, principles of management, healthcare values and ethics, financial resource management, and healthcare delivery systems. This program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)—a leading specialized accreditation association for business education—and is designed with input from business leaders and healthcare experts. Graduates of the B.S. Business—Healthcare Management degree program will be qualified to fill a variety of leadership roles, including: nursing home administrators, clinical managers, or community service managers.
Online programs allow for unparalleled flexibility, so students can complete coursework whenever and wherever works best for their schedule. Students also benefit from WGU's competency-based learning model, which makes it possible for them to potentially graduate faster by completing courses as quickly as they can prove mastery of the required material. Additionally, Faculty Mentors work one-on-one with WGU students, providing dedicated coaching, guidance, and support from enrollment through graduation.

Accreditation & Licensing
Western Governors University is the only university to have received simultaneous accreditation by four regional accrediting commissions. Currently, WGU's "home" accrediting commission is the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the same organization that accredits such leading institutions as the University of Washington, University of Oregon, University of Utah, Brigham Young University, and other public and private colleges.
