An MBA is a Master of Business Administration. An MHA is a Master of Science in Healthcare Administration.
An MHA program prepares leaders specifically for the healthcare industry. MHA graduates can work in hospitals, care homes, and other related facilities.
An MBA in Healthcare Management teaches a more versatile skillset for business-oriented professionals. Students still receive targeted knowledge and practical skills for leadership in the healthcare setting, but also graduate with broader knowledge that can apply to many industries.
