What is the difference between an MBA and MHA?

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.

With Herzing you also have the option to pursue a dual concentration. You can make yourself even more competitive by taking on additional coursework in topics such as technology management, human resources or accounting—whatever best suits your personal strengths and professional goals.
