With the program’s interactive design, students learn from each other’s experience as much as they learn from faculty. The curriculum focuses on developing the leadership and ethical skills needed to create highly effective health care organizations, as well as core health care content areas such as quality improvement, decision science, quantitative methods and community health.
MHA@GW’s online classes are conducted live with a 12:1 student to faculty ratio, making it the most interactive online Executive MHA program available.
