The Minnesota MHA is a top-ranked program of health care administration. As one of the first of its kind in the nation and founded by James A. Hamilton, it has become a model for other health care management programs.
We provide our students with the training they need to become leaders in health care administration with a curriculum that emphasizes leadership, business acumen, practical skills, and career development. One hundred percent of our graduating students secure administrative fellowships or jobs by July of their graduating year.
