PROGRAM DETAILS & HOW TO APPLY

discover the the information you need to know for this dual program  


  • Details


    You must choose either the MHA or the MBA as your primary degree, which determines the number of courses taken in each program:

    • With the MHA as your primary degree, you would take an additional 24 credit hours (8 courses) to complete the MBA.
       
    • With the MBA as your primary degree, you may complete the MHA with 24 additional credit hours.

     

    You may simultaneously pursue coursework in both programs. 

    If you successfully complete the course requirements in both programs, you will receive two separate degrees (MBA and MHA), and may file for graduation from one program before completing the course requirements in the other.

    Below are the course requirements for each as a primary degree.
