  • A personal interview. The applicant pool is competitive and will be screened by the program admissions committee which includes faculty, students, and administrators.

Admissions Recommendations

It is strongly recommended that students complete one semester of undergraduate courses in applied statistics, microeconomics, Excel, and accounting prior to attending the MHA program.

Current knowledge of these courses will prepare students for the rigorous graduate-level curriculum and help ensure student success.

Admission will not be dependent on whether a student has taken these courses, but doing so will ease your transition into the program and demonstrate your commitment to success. Courses taken at a community college are acceptable.
