Executive Track

The Executive Master of Health Administration (Executive MHA) track of the MHA Program is specifically tailored to mid-career health care professionals with at least 5 five years of increasing responsibilities within health services or related industries. This 12-course, 48-credit hour master’s degree takes 24 months to complete, is taught one weekend a month, and is conveniently located at the Houston Campus of the Texas A&M University Health Science Center in the Texas Medical Center.

We are seeking mid-career health care professionals with demonstrated experience in health care leadership who need formal management knowledge to enhance their career.

The Executive MHA curriculum is deliberately structured to provide contemporary health administration content and knowledge including population health, big data and analytics, economic analysis, finance, quality, operations, human resources, law and ethics, strategy, marketing, and health policy. The core emphases are on the leadership skills and practices required to address the range of issues currently facing provider organizations such as health systems, hospitals, physician offices and group practices, clinics, accountable care organizations, managed care organizations, health insurers, and a variety of other organizations that supply or support public or private health service organizations. 

The course sequence for the Executive MHA is lock-step with no electives. Courses are taught in-person one weekend a month for 24 months. Each course is taught over two consecutive months with instruction occurring primarily through intense weekend classes supported with online content between weekends.

This track admits students annually every August.
