Note: The Healthcare Management Certificate program does not require the GRE or other graduate exams.

Program-specific Prerequisites and Notes

(Note: these requirements and notes are in addition to the general admissions requirements above)

  • Candidates must have at least two years of professional experience (displayed on resume or curriculum vitae).
  • Because the coursework in Healthcare Management is the same as that of the MHA Executive full degree program, some enrollees in the certificate may decide to pursue their Executive MHA after completing the first or second semester of the certificate. Students interested in that option will be required to meet the requirements for admission to the MHA Executive Track.
