Fall 2016 MHA Students
The UNC Charlotte Master of Health Administration (MHA) Program leverages its position within the Department of Public Health Sciences of North Carolina’s Urban Research University to prepare national and international students to advance the public’s health through competent leadership and management of healthcare organizations and systems.
We pursue our mission through education, research, and service efforts that:
1. Provide qualified and motivated students from a variety of disciplines, levels of experience, and backgrounds – with a special emphasis on individuals and groups historically underrepresented in graduate education – the knowledge, skills, and abilities to become effective administrators and stewards of a dynamic health and healthcare system;
2. Contribute to the body of knowledge related to the design, organization and delivery, evaluation, and leadership of health and healthcare systems;
3. Apply our expertise to support health leaders and the communities they serve in advancing the public’s health.
The UNC Charlotte Master of Health Administration program is to be the premier program in developing healthcare leaders who promote healthy people, healthy places, healthy communities by transforming the healthcare environment.
Our program values collaboration, community engagement, diversity, innovation, professionalism, health equity, and social justice.
