The American College of Healthcare Executives Student Association (ACHESA) at WKU is a student chapter of its parent organization, American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). ACHE is a 30,000 member professional society for healthcare executives. ACHE offers many educational programs, including annual conference in Chicago, and its prestigious credentialing.
The purpose of the student chapter is to expose Health Services Administration majors to network with peers and established administrators. The student chapter often hosts guest speakers within the healthcare field to talk and present their views and information on the different facets of healthcare. The student chapter also helps students develop skills to market themselves upon graduation for many types of health related jobs, primarily entry level management positions. ACHESA is also a place where employers can look for future employees.
