Careers

The Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) program is well positioned to launch the careers of future health care leaders. Historically 100% of our MHA students have secured administrative fellowships or jobs by July 1 of their graduating year.

Most Minnesota MHA graduates advance to administrative fellowships in the nation’s leading health care delivery organizations.

MHA Leadership Edge: Resume development and mock interviews, along with leadership assessment, feedback, and individual coaching from an industrial psychologist, prepare graduates to succeed in the workplace. All students are matched with an alumni mentor.

Extensive Career Support

The MHA program provides support to students throughout the application process. They participate in communications skills seminars, resumé development, videotaped mock interviews, mentoring program, professional conferences, networking with alumni, skill assessment and development, and individual career counseling.

Students begin fellowship application activities when they enroll for their first semester of study. During fall semester of the first year, students attend a communications skills seminar, have individual resumé critiques, are matched with an alumni mentor, travel to professional conferences, and attend social functions with healthcare leaders.
