Executive MHA (Online)
Weber State University’s Executive MHA (eMHA) is a nearly 100% online program designed for full-time working professionals who want to advance into leadership positions in the healthcare industry.
For our campus-based program, see our Master of Health Administration (MHA) page.
What You’ll Learn
Like our MHA program, the Executive MHA program prepares you for leadership positions in the healthcare industry, with the added benefit of completing your degree online.
Executive MHA courses cover topics such as:
- Management and leadership
- Finance and accounting
- Healthcare ethics and law
- Interpersonal communication
- Organizational skills
- Healthcare information technology
- Human resources
Our program also aims to instill you with critical thinking skills and the desire to continue developing your skills and pursue lifelong learning opportunities after graduation.
Full-time students can complete the Executive MHA program in 4 semesters over 2 academic years. While all courses are conducted online, students are required to attend a one-day orientation at Weber State Farmington Station at the beginning of the program.
A $200 tuition reduction for the first fall semester will be given to eMHA students to offset the cost to attend the orientation.
