The Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) program is designed to meet the needs of healthcare professionals and others who wish to obtain the knowledge and skills needed to assume mid-level and executive level managerial positions in health services organizations.
Health Services Administration degrees prepare students by training them to manage and direct the business aspects of healthcare. Graduates of the MHSA program are prepared for managerial positions in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, physician's offices, pharmaceutical and device manufacturers, consulting, government and public policy, and others.
Completion of Strayer University's Master of Health Services Administration program does not guarantee a student has met the requirements to apply for licensure as a healthcare administrator in any state. Students pursuing professional healhcare certifications should contact their respective state health departments to confirm educational requirements before beginning the program.
Students who have not earned degrees from appropriate fields of study may be required to take additional coursework as a prerequisite for completing the program.
