The Master of Health Administration (MHA) program offers students a competency-based curriculum and an array of professional development resources and activities to prepare graduates for managerial roles in health care systems and networks, managed care, health insurance, and long-term care organizations. The broad curriculum provides students with a foundation of knowledge, analytical and communication skills, and core values for ongoing career growth and professional and leadership development. Upon completion of the MHA program, our graduates obtain post-graduate fellowships or full-time employment in hospitals, academic medical centers, physician practices, long-term care facilities, health plans, and consulting firms.
Mission: The Pitt MHA program seeks to transform motivated, service-oriented early careerists into health industry professionals who are optimally prepared to compete nationally for entry-level and mid-level management and leadership positions. We facilitate this transformation through an engaged learning experience that leverages research-focused faculty and industry practitioners, as well as integrative residency and capstone experiences. This approach creates a dynamic learning experience enriched by evidence-based practice and high-impact scholarship.
Vision: The Pitt MHA aspires to be one of the premier programs in the country, as recognized by prospective and current students, our alumni community, and our health industry stakeholders.
Goals: Consistent with the Mission and Vision Statements, the following broad goals have been established for the Program as the foundation for its strategic planning process and commitment to continuing improvement. These are presented in recognition of our need to be responsive to a fast-changing, complex health care environment and accelerated competition among health care management programs internationally.
