Master of Healthcare Administration (STEM Program)

Program Description

The Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree is designed for career-oriented individuals who want to shape the direction of healthcare organisations throughout the world. Massive shifts are impacting the industry worldwide and creating a high-growth, dynamic field of study and practice. Courses are offered in seven-week sessions, and students decide if they want instruction in the classroom, entirely online or blended with weekly enrichment sessions.

The Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree, which is STEM-designated, was developed to meet the needs of evolving healthcare systems worldwide through flexible, student-choice instruction. Students decide what works best with their schedules and learning preferences. They can take coursework in the classroom or online. Even online students can complete the coursework independently or blend in weekly enrichment sessions through video conferencing. The 36-credit program can be completed part-time in two years or full time in one. All courses are offered in seven-week increments. The dynamic curriculum is taught by leading healthcare professionals. All are experienced managers, and many are currently high-level professionals in healthcare organisations.

Career opportunities abound for capable, highly-skilled healthcare managers. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the role of healthcare managers will grow in the United States by 32% through 2029. The World Health Organization predicts that because of a shortage of healthcare workers, job growth in the industry will average 55% by 2030.
