  • April 28: MHSA program reduces tuition and credits

    Wednesday April 28, 2021

    The Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA) program announces two important updates, effective Fall term 2021. The program will adjust its graduate tuition from $1,006 to $878 per credit hour. This new, reduced tuition makes this program even more affordable. The MHSA program will also adopt a new curriculum where the number of total credits required for graduation have been reduced from 47 to 42 credits.

    The Master of Health Services Administration program creates community leaders in health care and offers exceptional academics, a rewarding career, professional development opportunities and a strong connection with the healthcare industry and the community. The program develops advanced competencies in management, quality improvement and fiscal analysis. Small class sizes, 100 percent administrative internship placement rate, focus on active learning, case-based instruction and real-world experiences are among the program’s many attractive features, along with the convenience of evening and online classes designed for a working student. All faculty are currently practicing or former healthcare administrators; all full-time faculty have doctoral degrees in their field of expertise. The 42-credit master’s degree can be completed in five semesters.

    These adjustments come at a key time for the city of Detroit and the University, after a year of historic challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic and provide the MHSA program with a stronger competitive opportunity.
