Why an MHA?
MHA vs. MBA
Healthcare doesn’t just need new leaders. It needs dedicated leadership. Turnover rates for healthcare CEOs are higher than they’ve been in the past two decades, according to the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE). That’s because it takes more than business skills to manage health systems. It requires a blended perspective that an MHA imparts.
When you choose an MHA over an MBA, you can learn business concepts in the context of healthcare. Experienced health administrators comprise our faculty at Adventist University, so you can gain practical insights from experts working for real-world organizations. An MHA offers a more focused framework to apply directly to help advance your strategy and your career.
MHA vs. EMHA
