Our Executive MHA program is the #2 healthcare management program in the U.S. and trains many of the nation’s foremost leaders in healthcare. The rigorous curriculum focuses on the management of complex, integrated health systems, including the expanded role of clinical professionals, managers, and leaders in those systems. Learning is supported by alumni involvement, innovative leadership projects, and student support by peers, faculty, and staff.
Program format: The coursework is completed asynchronously online with an in-person kickoff on the UMN Twin Cities campus at the beginning of each semester and again during their final semester for a capstone celebration. (An online version of these events are offered if necessary.)
Credits: Students must complete a total of 42 credits. In consultation with their program director, students may take additional credits to declare and obtain a minor.
Estimated time commitment: Students can expect to dedicate 10-15 hours per week on coursework.
Program length: The program is completed in less than 2 years and classes are taken year-round (Including summers).
Executive MHA competencies were developed by the National Center for Health Care Leadership and are now essential elements of the accreditation of graduate programs in healthcare administration conducted by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME).
