Dual MBA-Master’s in Health Administration Courses Online

The dual MBA-MHA curriculum combines courses from both programs for a total of 65 credits (or up to 70 if you choose to do an optional administrative residency). Healthcare administration courses align with the competency model designed by the Healthcare Leadership Alliance (HLA), offering outcomes in leadership, business knowledge and skills, communication and relationship management, and knowledge of the healthcare environment. MBA classes complement those courses with broad-based expertise in a range of business functions, including financial management, accounting and marketing.

MBA and MHA courses online are taught by the distinguished faculty at The University of Scranton, who foster a dynamic and interactive learning environment in which students learn from not only their instructors but also each other. Upon completion of the program, you will have in-depth knowledge of business skills and how to apply them to the specific needs and challenges of health administration.  

Please note that up to seven one-credit MBA Foundation Modules may be required depending upon your undergraduate education. These may be waived based on your professional experience.
