Online Executive MHA Programs

sponsored


Experienced healthcare professionals looking to advance into leadership, management, or executive positions may want to consider enrolling in an an executive master of healthcare administration (EMHA) program online. These programs are designed for senior managers, directors, and executives with five or more years of experience, and help prepare graduates to better lead healthcare organizations from executive positions in the clinical, public, and corporate sectors. These programs offer advanced, cross-disciplinary instruction in leadership, marketing, epidemiology, operations management, economics, and quality control, among other areas. By offering courses online, on-campus requirements are minimized, enabling busy working professionals to advance their knowledge and skills during times of their choosing, and without having to relocate.

That said, some executive MHA programs schedule periodic symposiums where classmates in a specific cohort get together either in person or in a real-time (synchronous) online meeting area to interact and learn, leveraging one another’s experience.

Discover what to expect from an online EHMA program, including typical admissions requirements, duration, curricula, tuition, exceptional faculty members, and other features.
