Executive Degree Option

When offered based on a contractual agreement with a select organization to a group of students, typically a cohort, with significant professional healthcare experience, the Master of Health Administration program may be presented in a format referred to as the Executive MHA Option or the EMHA. The EMHA is currently available only under a contractual arrangement with a specific organization. From a curricular viewpoint, the EMHA would be structured in the same way as the traditional MHA, however, the sequencing, presentation format and mix of core and elective courses will be designed in such a way as to maximize the benefit of working professionals.

GMAT/GRE scores are not required for admission to the EMHA, however, the applicant will need to provide documentation verifying at least 3 years of professional healthcare experience.

For EMHA students, prerequisites requirement for the core program course can be satisfied through appropriate prior coursework, relevant professional experience or by an individualized study program developed and supervised by the MHA Program Director.

The credit hour costs for classes taken by students enrolled in the EMHA program are assessed at a higher rate than the traditional MHA offerings due to additional expenditures associated with the program.
