Overview

The MHA program helps students understand business principles and their application to the health care sector. Students enrolled in the Master in Health Administration (MHA) program hone skills in business fundamentals such as finance, accounting, human resources, and process improvement, and gain knowledge in health care specific areas including the structure, organization, policy, and delivery of health care; health economics; and information technology; among others. Students also gain a comprehensive lens through which they can approach solutions in their careers through first-hand experience of daily operations and opportunities to improve processes. Students have access to C-suite leaders in the classroom and other venues. Each student will also have the opportunity to participate in an off-site internship experience. Graduates of the program are prepared to be leaders in the management and administration of health care systems, physician groups, insurance companies, medical device companies and health care facilities.
