EMHA Curriculum

The Executive Master of Health Administration (MHA) track of the  MHA program is specifically tailored to mid-career healthcare professionals. This 12-course, 48-credit hour master’s degree takes 24 months to complete, is taught one weekend a month, and is conveniently located at the Houston Campus of the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

We are seeking mid-career healthcare professionals with demonstrated experience in healthcare management and leadership who need formal management knowledge to enhance their career.

The Executive MHA curriculum is deliberately structured to provide contemporary health administration content and knowledge including population health, “big data” and analytics, economic analysis, finance, quality, operations, human resources, law and ethics, strategy, marketing, and health policy. The core emphases are on the leadership skills and practices required to address the range of issues currently facing provider organizations (e.g., health systems, hospitals, physician offices and group practices, clinics, and Accountable Care Organizations), managed care organizations, health insurers, and a variety of other organizations that supply or support public or private health service organizations. 

The course sequence for the Executive MHA is lock-step with no electives. Courses are taught in-person one weekend a month for 24 months. Each course is taught over two consecutive months with instruction occurring primarily through intense weekend classes supported with online content between weekends.
