Message From the Director

Today’s health care environment is ever-changing, shaped by competing policy, medical, financial, organizational, and societal forces. Health care administrators are tasked with understanding and managing these elements to ultimately improve health care delivery and patient outcomes. Our Master of Health Administration (MHA) program helps you to prepare for change, as well as to lead it.

Located in one of the world’s most diverse cities, the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai provides an unparalleled opportunity for students to experience a breadth of perspectives and populations.

As an integral part of the Mount Sinai Health System, our MHA curriculum stems from the real-world experiences happening in health care today. Our faculty live and breathe what they teach. You will learn from hands-on professionals who are actually spearheading our innovation, growth, and exceptional patient care. Simply put, the knowledge you can directly access and learn here, you can’t find anywhere else.

Students in our Master of Health Administration program are driven to shape health care organizations into high-value delivery systems for diverse populations. The operational success of health care systems is linked to improved quality of care, effective treatment, and financial stability. Our MHA graduates define, reinvent, and exemplify health care transformation.

If you are passionate about the positive outcomes that derive from systemic change in health care, you will thrive in the MHA program. We are committed to empowering you to achieve it.
