Executive Master of Healthcare Administration
To land a top leadership position in healthcare, it’s no longer enough to have a certain amount of experience. Increasingly, those top-level jobs require an advanced degree. The Executive Master of Healthcare Administration (EMHA) from AHU Online is designed to help leaders in the healthcare field advance even further, faster.
Designed for professionals who have at least three years of healthcare experience in HR, budgeting, or management, the EMHA degree can be completed in just 19 months. The program was developed by our globally recognized, doctoral-level faculty, with input from some of the top employers in the industry.
What You Can Expect from AHU’s Executive MHA
The EMHA is fully online, meaning you can complete the courses on your own schedule. Additionally, you can adapt the curriculum to fit your training and strengths. Your healthcare experience will open opportunities for networking and collaboration with other professionals in your courses. Our admissions process doesn’t require the GRE or GMAT.
The faculty behind the EMHA are renowned professionals with extensive experience working in healthcare and teaching. The program was inspired by employers such as Adventist Health System, Florida Hospital, Guidewell, GE, and AstraZeneca.
In the EMHA program, you aren’t just a number. Every master’s student receives his or her own Retention Specialist, who helps guide you through the admissions and enrollment process, all the way to program completion. Students also have access to tech support 24/7 and can connect to faculty during virtual office hours or through an online discussion board.
An EMHA degree prepares you for a leadership or executive level position faster than an MHA. You’ll learn to interpret consumer behavior and improve marketing efforts, form strategies to increase productivity and advance your competitive position, and extend your financial management skills to solve problems at the executive level.
