Master of Health Administration


Jami DelliFraine, Ph.D., Division Director.This program is offered in two formats: executive and residential.

Residential MHA

The Residential MHA program is designed to develop the health care leaders of tomorrow. Students in this program will gain a comprehensive understanding of the health care system including socio-behavioral components and their impact on health care delivery. They will be able to provide an integrated approach to the management of health care professionals and facility operations as well as apply concepts and managerial skills in a variety of areas within the health care system. Students are able to take an elective in the area of their career interests.

Executive MHA

The Executive MHA program is designed for working health care professionals who wish to advance their careers. Using a combination of on-campus and Internet-based instruction, the program enables students to complete the coursework in two or three years, while continuing to work and live in their home communities.

Note: The MHA curriculum is almost identical for the Residential and Executive formats. The difference in the two programs is the delivery method and the field internship requirement for the residential MHA students.
