Master of Health Administration (MHA)
Let's Talk. Call 610-861-1400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Program admission requirements include the completion of undergraduate-level business competencies, either prior to matriculation or as part of the program; a student must have a GPA equivalent to 2.8 or higher in the business competencies to graduate. The business competency requirement for the MHA is statistics, ECON 156 Economics and Business Statistics, or its equivalent.
Don't worry—our SEMs are poised to help you knock this requirement out so you can get started on the core of your education as soon as possible.
