Master of Health Administration (MHA)
The MHA is a professional program for clinicians, administrators, researchers and managers who are seeing solutions to today’s complex health delivery issues. Our weekend modular format is designed for working professionals.
You will complete courses that provide the big picture of health care such as health policy, social determinants of health and quality of care. You will also gain essential skills for management through courses in accounting, finance, IT, human resources and leadership. The program is 24 months, including 24 courses and a capstone research project.
What makes the program unique?
Co-delivered by the School of Population and Public Health and the Sauder School of Business, you will benefit from the professional experience and expertise of instructors who are leaders in healthcare and business. The MHA is a cohort-based program where you’ll connect with other like-minded students who are also professionals working across the healthcare sector.
With our compressed format, you attend class every 3-4 weeks. Classes are held on the weekends at UBC’s Robson Square campus located in downtown Vancouver.
