Accreditation of our healthcare administration degree

After graduating from SBBCollege you will hold a fully accredited Bachelor’s Degree in Healthcare Administration, as SBBCollege is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS). It is important that your chosen program of study is accredited, as this opens up a wider range of job opportunities. Graduates with accredited degree qualifications generally have a better chance of landing jobs in their field of study than those with non-accredited degrees. The accreditation essentially guarantees to an employer that you have the knowledge required to carry out the role with competence.

Accreditation is particularly important for those thinking of attending graduate school or applying for scholarship programs. Most of the scholarships which offer assistance tend to be reserved for students who are enrolled in accredited programs, and are likely to make the most of their qualifications after finishing college.

The application process

Our students tell us that one of their favorite things about SBBCollege is that the small class sizes (typically no more than 20 students) mean that everyone gets a personalized level of education.

When evaluating applications, we do not only look at academic qualifications. We also consider various other factors which may influence your suitability for the program, including personal references, extracurricular activities and employment history. When completing your application you should think about these different elements and how they could demonstrate any relevant qualities which make you a good fit for the course.

If we are impressed with your written application, we will invite you to the campus for a face-to-face interview. This gives you an opportunity to get a better feel for the college and the course, and decide if it will be a good fit for your learning style. It also gives us a chance to gain a clearer understanding of your motivations for joining the program and how you are likely to handle the workload.

We would advise giving some thought to the kind of questions you may be asked at the interview. Typical interview questions for access to a healthcare administration degree could include: 

  1. Why are you interested in a career in healthcare administration?
  2. What skills do you think are important for a healthcare administrator?
  3. What do you consider to be your strengths and weaknesses?
  4. What are your short-term and long-term career goals?
  5. Describe a time when you have worked well under pressure. 

Thinking about these and similar questions will give you a better chance of demonstrating to our admissions staff why you deserve to be accepted onto the program. We recommend considering these before completing your written application, rather than only before interview, as a clear understanding of your own motivations and strengths will make it much easier to answer admissions questions.
