MBA/Master of Health Services Administration

Prepare yourself for a management career in health care by combining the MBA at UM-Dearborn with a Master of Health Services Administration at UM-Ann Arbor.

The dual MBA/Master of Health Services administration, offered jointly between the College of Business at the University of Michigan-Dearborn and the School of Public Health at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, allows students to earn both degrees simultaneously.

The Master of Health Services Administration focuses on the organization, financing, marketing, and management of health care institutions and the delivery of personal health services in the United States. The program prepares you for management careers in the unique environment of health care, including careers in health systems, hospital, clinic, and emergency services management. The MHSA is also appropriate for those seeking positions as planners, policy analysts, or consultants focusing on the financing, organization, quality and delivery of personal health services in either the public or the private sector. 

The MBA offers a number of skills beyond the MHSA, including expanded coverage of finance, marketing, and strategy as practiced in industries other than health care. It is valuable to understand the management of for-profit corporations in health care, and it provides a broader foundation for senior management positions in all sectors. The MBA offers a unique set of courses in Applied Integrated Management (AIM), which help build your expertise at applying business skills to real-world, global business problems.

You can complete the MBA portion of the program online, in the evenings on the UM-Dearborn campus, or in a hybrid format. Throughout the program, you'll work together with expert faculty and other bright, motivated students. You'll enjoy flexible schedules with evening and online course options, and you'll have expansive opportunities for networking, all from a consistently top-ranked program.

The MHSA portion of the program requires full-time enrollment on the UM-Ann Arbor campus.
