Application Deadlines / Admissions Requirements
The master of health administration program is designed to prepare students for effective organizational management based on competencies and evidence based practices needed to become exceptional managers and leaders. The program is also committed to the improvement of health services through health services research and community engagement within complex health-related organizations. The 60 credit hour program is designed for aspiring and committed professionals who are interested in careers in health services administration in such settings as hospitals, managed care, insurance and pharmaceutical companies, consulting firms, government agencies, for-profit and nonprofit sector organizations.
The curriculum is guided by the National Center for Healthcare Leadership (NCHL) Health Leadership Competency Model which addresses the complexity and dynamic qualities of the health leader's role and reflects the dynamic realities in health leadership today. Through an internship and a final integrative experience, students are asked to incorporate, synthesize and apply their knowledge within both an operational and a community context. The result is an organizational perspective that encourages students to integrate knowledge from a range of management disciplines while emphasizing accountability for effective performance and operational excellence.
By the conclusion of the MHA program, students will be able to demonstrate knowledge and application in 18 competencies. To learn about the MHA Competencies click here
