Executive Master's Program in Health Management and Policy

The Executive Master's Program in Health Management and Policy at the University of Michigan's School of Public Health allows you to continue working full-time while pursuing a Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) degree.

What Is the Executive Master's Program?

The Executive Master's program is similar to a traditional healthcare MBA program, except that each course is designed to meet the needs of future managers, analysts, and leaders in the health field.

As a student in one of the top ranked programs in the nation, you will learn about the history, structure, and operation of the United States healthcare system, the structure of the US healthcare financial system, public health policy formation and evaluation, and the conceptualization and implementation of health quality measurement.

The program is challenging but manageable. The hybrid format is designed for the dedicated working professional who wants to pursue career advancement in many sectors of health care, administration, and business. Many of our graduates say they get as much value from their fellow students as they do from the curriculum. Program satisfaction is consistently rated extremely high among graduates, many of whom remain professionally connected throughout their careers.

The deadline to apply for the Fall 2023 program start is July 15, 2023.
