NEW MASTER IN HEALTH ADMINISTRATION EXPANDS SCHOOL’S HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY PROGRAMS
BY RICHARD WESTLUND (MBA ’83)

The School of Business is offering a new Master in Health Administration (MHA) program focused on the business of health care, led by experienced faculty members and featuring guest lectures by Donna E. Shalala, former UM president and U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The 40-credit program, starting in August 2017, will be offered over 18 months with the option of taking longer to accommodate career or personal responsibilities. Each class will be capped at approximately 20 applicants.

The program has a strong foundation in finance, accounting, process improvement and timely health care issues, as well as elective courses on marketing, entrepreneurship and other topics. Each student will participate in a paid local internship with a health care organization, arranged by the School of Business.

“Prospective students could range from health care professionals in the early stage of their careers, to graduating seniors who want to continue their business education within the health care sector, to future physicians seeking to  boost their business skills before entering medical school,” says Karoline Mortensen, associate professor of health sector management and policy and director of the MHA program. “Students will be offered a blend of business and population health perspectives, with an emphasis on strategic thinking and leadership skills.”
