Curriculum Requirements

MHA Curriculum

School of Public Health MHA Competencies:
  • MHA Competencies

The MHA curriculum is based on a conceptual model of a health services enterprise operating in a complex social and business environment. In the first quarter, students are introduced to a broad range of management concepts from a clinical perspective, an organizational perspective, and a societal perspective. Students then learn and apply the theoretical bases in four areas: organizational studies, economics and finance, clinical evaluation and quality management, and policy analysis. In the final quarter of the program, students are asked to integrate, synthesize, and apply their knowledge within both an operational and a community context. The result is an organizational perspective that encourages students to synthesize knowledge from a range of management disciplines while emphasizing accountability for effective organizational performance.
