About the MSHA Program

The Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA) Program is now ranked #2 in the nation according to the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings.

“The ranking is an acknowledgement of our commitment to provide an outstanding learning experience that includes excellent education, practice-relevant scholarly activity, and engaged alumni,” said Christy Harris Lemak, Ph.D., chair of the Department of Health Services Administration. “It means so much to the department because it is recognition from our peers and because it highlights a legacy of excellence that began 50 years ago.” 

The MSHA Program prepares you to assume executive leadership positions in a broad range of health services organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician group practices, health maintenance organizations, long-term care facilities, consulting firms, and insurance companies. Founded in 1965, the MSHA Program enjoys an excellent reputation, both regionally and nationally, for the high quality of its academic program and the achievements of its more than 1,300 graduates.
