“We are very excited to announce the Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) degree, a fully online program that can be completed in two years! Graduates are prepared with the necessary skill and knowledge to lead healthcare organizations through the use of evidence-based decision making in the areas of economics, financial management, organizational behavior and human resource management, strategic planning, and marketing, with a keen focus on quality improvement, resource efficiency,  and inter-professional collaboration. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects employment opportunities for medical and health services managers to increase by 17% during the period from 2014 to 2024, much faster than most occupations. The national median wage is $92,810 in May 2014, the Michigan media wage is $85,500 for this same time frame.

Not ready for a graduate degree? Prehaps the Health Care Systems Administration (HCSA) bachelor’s degree is for you. Interested in adding a minor or post-bachelor certificate? Consider Lean Healthcare, which is recognized by Spectrum Health Systems as being leading edge, Lean Healthcare is offered as both a minor and post-bachelor certificate. Do you dream of becoming a nursing home administrator? Learn what the Long Term Care Certificate has to offer.”
