Society is changing—it's more global and connected than ever before. As exciting as that is, it also means we face more complex challenges. We need effective, ethical leaders who can collaborate across fields and industries to successfully solve problems and transform their organizations—and even the world—for the better. A doctorate from a respected institution such as Creighton University is a recognizable asset that can have a positive impact on job security and opportunities for promotion.
In education, overall growth for administrators is projected to grow by 8% from 2008 to 20181, due in part to increasing requirements and responsibilities. Growth in the for-profit education sector and the changing face of education, with more non-traditional students entering the field, is also driving the creation of jobs that require a doctorate.

In health care administration and clinical and health information management, managerial and senior executive positions require graduate degrees. Jobs in this area are expected to grow by 16% from 2008 to 2018, led by increasing regulations, new technologies, and a growing emphasis on preventative care.2
