We have developed the Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA) program as a professional program providing a convenient, online format — combined with six on-campus sessions — so that health care professionals working full time can earn a MSHA from anywhere in the U.S. at any time in a matter of 22 months.

This program attracts clinicians, executive-level managers and mid-career managers from a variety of health care fields with at least five years of professional experience. Typically, successful applicants demonstrate diversity in their educational, work, and life experiences, as well as a capacity to pursue a rigorous course of professional graduate study and assume increasingly responsible positions in the healthcare industry.
