Master of Science in Health Administration

The Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA) Program prepares individuals to assume executive leadership positions in a broad range of health services organizations, including hospitals, health systems, physician group practices, health maintenance organizations, long-term care facilities, consulting firms, and insurance companies. Founded in 1965, the MSHA Program at UAB enjoys an excellent reputation, both regionally and nationally, for the high quality of its academic program and the achievements of its more than 1,300 graduates.

UAB's MSHA Program may be pursued in two formats:

1) Residential MSHA Program focuses on training students just completing an undergraduate degree or those individuals desiring a career change.
2) Executive MSHA Program is aimed at working professionals with at least five years of health care experience.
