Health Management & Policy
Masters of Health Services Administration (M.H.S.A.)
The M.H.S.A. degree program focuses on the organization, financing, marketing, and management of health care institutions and the delivery of personal health services in the United States. Many of the core competencies of the M.H.S.A. degree are modeled after a general business administration curriculum. The program prepares students for management careers in the unique environment of health care, including careers in health systems, hospital, clinic, and emergency services management. The M.H.S.A. degree is also appropriate for those seeking positions as planners, policy analysts, or consultants focusing on the financing, organization, quality and delivery of personal health services in either the public or the private sector.
We have designed our curriculum around a set of core competencies that define professional excellence in health management and policy. The competency base defines professional skills that we expect our students to have when they leave the program. The competencies are found in our Competency Model which is updated periodically and based on research, the knowledge base for these fields and on-going feedback from professionals in the field.
