American College of Healthcare Executives Competencies Assessment Tool

Peirce College’s Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration curriculum is informed, in part, by the key competencies outlined by the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE).

These key competencies, organized by domain, include: 

  • Communication and Relationship Management
  • Leadership
  • Professionalism
  • Knowledge of the Healthcare Environment
  • Business Skills and Knowledge

The competencies were derived from job analysis surveys conducted by Healthcare Leadership Alliance associations. In addition to the American College of Healthcare Executives, members of the Healthcare Leadership Alliance are American Association of Physician Leadership, American Organization of Nurse Executives, Healthcare Financial Management Association, Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society and Medical Group Management Association.
