New program provides a pathway into healthcare leadership.
The Master’s University Online is launching a new Master of Health Administration program this spring. The degree will prepare students for a leadership career in an industry that is a clear mission-match with TMU.
“Healthcare is an area where Christians should be,” says Matt Frields, TMU’s director of marketing and enrollment for online programs. “It’s a field where you’re able to serve and care for people — not just people who are sick, but those who are taking care of the sick. People who work in healthcare need good leadership, so this was kind of a no-brainer.”
On top of that, medicine is a growing field. The demand for health service managers, Frields says, is expected to grow significantly over the next few years, creating more opportunities for those looking to enter leadership roles.
TMU’s new MHA is designed to train these future leaders.
“Graduates from this program will be able to step right into a leadership position within the healthcare industry,” Frields says, “whether at a hospital, an urgent care center, a health insurance company, or elsewhere. There are a lot of options out there.”
The MHA program will educate students in everything from the big picture of the United States healthcare industry down to the particulars of risk management and regulatory compliance. The program’s 36-unit curriculum is split into eight-week modules and will take one to two years to complete.
Frields expects the program will have wide appeal, offering a pathway for healthcare practitioners to enter leadership roles, as well as an avenue for those outside the industry to break in. He also believes that the program is an excellent option for recent TMU graduates wanting to enter an in-demand field.
“If you’re choosing between an MBA and an MHA, and you have a desire to work in healthcare or progress your career in healthcare, the MHA is the route to go,” Frields says.
The Master’s University and Seminary admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
