Message from the Program Director

Today’s health care administrator needs to be adept at managing change in a highly uncertain environment, shaped by competing policy, legal, medical, financial, organizational, and cultural forces. Our Master of Health Administration (MHA) program is especially suited to help you be prepared for change, as well as to lead it. Not only are we part of one of the foremost medical schools in the nation, but we are an integral part of a fast-growing integrated health system in one of the world’s most diverse cities. 

Everything seems to move faster in New York, and we are no exception. The Mount Sinai Health System has aggressively expanded over the past couple years and has launched a sweeping transformation of its downtown Manhattan operations. Our program draws upon the executives leading these initiatives, as well as acclaimed faculty from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, which is top-ranked by leading organizations in research funding, innovations, and diversity. Simply put, what you learn here, you can’t find anywhere else.

You will have an opportunity to learn from hands-on professionals who are spearheading our innovation, growth, and exceptional medical care. Value is one of the new watchwords in health care. Tomorrow’s managers will define it, reinvent it, and exemplify it. They will shape their organizations into high-value delivery systems for diverse populations. We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are up to the task, and if you are one, our program is committed to empowering you to excel.
