What is an MHA?
Graduates with a Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree are prepared with the healthcare industry knowledge and integrated management skills required to pursue potential leadership positions in hospital or healthcare facilities, Bio-Pharma, Health-Tech, Consulting, Government Agencies, or Insurance organizations.
Our MHA Degree Competencies
HLA Competencies were defined by the Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLA) , the nation’s premier professional organization that together represent more than 140,000 members across the major healthcare management sectors. They defined five domains integral to the healthcare sector. We have embedded these domains into our program learning outcomes in order to produce well-rounded leaders that will contribute ethically and responsibly to society.
1. Business skills and knowledge. Summarize and evaluate foundational business functions and management theories.
2. Knowledge of the healthcare environment.
Evaluate healthcare delivery models and stakeholders.
Explore and evaluate the role of leadership and ethics in healthcare management.
4. Communication and relationship management.
Incorporate critical thinking and optimal decision making skills to produce an integrated analysis that enhances healthcare management.

Classes are delivered in a hybrid format with one-course at a time over 5-week blocks. Our hybrid model offers flexibility to students from outside the greater Sacramento region as classes meet Friday evenings from 5-8pm and Saturdays from 8am to 2pm with every 2nd and 4th week online. Students will complete 39-units (13 courses) in 24-months.
We offer small-class sizes centered around focused student learning experiences. We believe the cohort environment fosters cameraderie and life-long bonds. Cohorts include students from various backgrounds in healthcare or those aspiring to enter the field. We admit approximately 35 students per intake.
