Moravian Graduate


Lead the future of healthcare. Healthcare administrators run hospital systems, hospital units, skilled-care facilities, physicians’ offices, and work in government, insurance, medical device, and insurance companies. Healthcare management is a demanding profession requiring significant commitment and education for professional managers.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the growth of positions in healthcare management will be significantly greater than other occupations. The Bureau also states that a master’s degree in healthcare administration may be necessary for those already in health care to advance in the healthcare field.

The relevance of Moravian College’s Master of Health Administration (MHA) program is enhanced through interdisciplinary collaboration with the MBA and MSN Program in Nursing. Best business practices are shared among student professionals from a variety of organizations representing a cross section of the Lehigh Valley’s business community. This program is strategically designed for you to succeed in today’s complex healthcare environment.
