Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA)

The Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) is designed for students with minimal health care management experience who want to pursue management and leadership positions in health care settings. Founded in 1946, the MHA program has a long tradition of developing students and producing nationally-recognized health care leaders.

Distinct from other management programs, the Minnesota MHA uniquely integrates business principles with a deep understanding of health care delivery and complex health care organizations.
