MA in Health Care Management

Our master’s in healthcare management program, approved by Commission of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), uniquely challenges students to take courses broadly from several disciplines. Students will take courses in EMU partner programs MBA and MSN in Leadership & Management. Some of the trans-disciplinary aspects are evident in a required cross-cultural component, interdisciplinary seminars, social science and bioethics courses, and finally in a thesis project.

A dual MHM/MBA degree is also available. Students seeking a dual degree will be able to do so by completing a total of 60 SH of coursework rather than 84 SH (if each degree were done separately). Learn more about course requirements for the dual MHM/MBA degree.
