Your Path to Healthcare Leadership Starts Here

Here at UHCL, we welcome the access and capabilities provided by technology, and we know you do, too. That's why we're excited about the accelerated format for our 54-hour MHA/MBA degree plan* – instead of the traditional 16-week course, we've sharpened our coursework to where each class is only eight weeks in length!

Full-time, 24 months: 2 courses per 8-week term across the fall, spring and summer semesters
Part-time, 48 months: 1 course per 8-week term across the fall, spring and summer semesters

*One pre-requisite foundation course may be required.

With the hybrid format of this program, only half of your time in each course will be spent in a face-to-face classroom setting. The other half of each course will be completely online, allowing you the opportunity to complete your assignments according to your schedule.
