Health Administration - Joint Degree Programs
The Joint Degree MBA/MHA program incorporates an efficient combination of the most significant components of the Master of Business Administration and Master of Health Administration programs. The course of study culminates with neither a separate MBA or a separate MHA; rather, the Joint Degree MBA/ MHA is an intensive single degree program. The program is intended primarily for clinicians and healthcare managers whose career paths require advanced competencies in both quantitative and qualitative aspects of management. The program will be of significant benefit to persons who have worked in healthcare for at least five years. Individual arrangements may be developed for persons with less tenure in the health sector. A highlight of the program is an eight to ten day international study where students travel to Austria, Canada, Germany, England or other destinations under the direct supervision of Pfeiffer professors.
The Joint Degree MHA/MSL program incorporates an efficient combination of the most significant aspects of the single degree Master of Health Administration and Master of Science in Leadership programs. The course of study culminates with neither the Master of Health Administration nor the Master of Science in Leadership; rather, the MHA/MSL is an intensive single degree program. The program is intended primarily for clinicians and healthcare managers whose career paths require advanced competencies in qualitative and quantitative aspects of management. In addition to providing functional knowledge in the key managerial, finance, legal and ethical areas of the healthcare enterprise, it will provide the latest knowledge and skills necessary to effectively manage others and to successfully implement change initiatives. In so doing, the individual will be better prepared for leadership in the rapidly changing and extraordinarily complex health service environment of the 21st Century.
