Curriculum Information – Master of Healthcare Administration (Executive) (PDF)

Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) Executive Program utilizes an academically rigorous online and classroom format that prepares working professionals for leadership in healthcare administration.

The curriculum focuses on the management of complex, integrated health systems, including the expanded role of physicians, providers, managers, and leaders in those systems. Learning is supported by alumni involvement, innovative leadership projects, and student support by peers, faculty, and staff.

The program is delivered in a dynamic learning cohort model and is completed in less than two years. The coursework is predominately online with a synchronous kickoff session for each semester of the program (in-person and/or online). The program requires 42 credits.
