Can I work during the MHA program?
The Full-Time MHA program is designed for full-time participation. Students are encouraged not to work at the start of the program but may find flexibility to add part-time work as they progress in their degree. The Professional MHA is designed for working professionals in healthcare, and P-MHA students are able to work full-time while attending school. Throughout the program, students work closely with their academic advisor to determine a program of study that will meet student needs and program expectations.
Is work experience required for admission?
Competitive applicants for the Full-Time MHA program are recommended to obtain at least 6 to 12 months of healthcare administration experience prior to starting the program. This experience can be obtained through a variety of paid and/or volunteer experiences.
Students applying to the Professional MHA program must have a minimum of three years of full-time work experience in healthcare prior to the start of their degree. Students who are currently employed in healthcare have the opportunity to maintain full-time employment while pursuing the P-MHA program.
