The health care sector is a complex environment of health care systems; not-for-profit and for-profit health organizations; medical practices; and urban, suburban, and rural settings that provide a range of health care services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Health care administrators, leaders, directors, and managers are responsible for the day-to-day operations by providing executive leadership and oversight in policies and procedures, strategic vision and direction, finance and costs, and quality of care. A Master’s of Health Administration requires a range of knowledge, skills, and competencies essential for the provision of effective health care.
The University of Cincinnati Online Master of Health Administration (MHA) program prepares students to become the next generation of executive health care leaders by combining real-world experience and competency-based coursework in an innovative learning environment.
