The Health Administration (Executive) program from Rutgers University is designed for emerging leaders who want to transform health care delivery.


Ten of the 20 fastest-growing jobs today are in health care, a field that will, in the next few years, continue to add more new jobs than any other sector. Health care reform continues to greatly increase demand for quality, affordable care, requiring clinicians and administrators alike to come up with novel approaches for care delivery. Succeeding in this environment calls for specialized knowledge and skills. The Health Administration (Executive) program is offered at Rutgers University.

Why the Rutgers MHA?

The Executive Master of Health Administration at the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy is for health professionals who aspire to advance into executive leadership roles. This cohort-based program approaches your professional development and education in the same way as does the work environment—by throwing challenges your way.  This is by no means your traditional didactic, textbook-centric class.

Programme Structure

  • The Executive MHA Program is tailored for the health professional with at least five years of experience. Our newly designed curriculum presents information in four sequential, 9-credit modules or clusters—courses grouped together in common themes and two experiential summers.  
  • At the start of each module, cohorts take on a complex health care problem and collaboratively create innovative solutions.
  • Executive MHA participants complete the 45-credit program in two calendar years, including completion of an experiential portfolio of management achievements, typically up to 6 credits.
