UNM Master of Health Administration
News for English Test VocabularyThe Master of Health Administration (MHA) program fills an important labor market and educational need in New Mexico and the Southwest by providing professional education for leadership careers in healthcare administration. Healthcare organizations statewide worked with the School of Public Administration to develop the MHA program. The shared aim is to develop effective executives and informed health policy advisors.

The MHA curriculum responds to the particular needs of our region. Issues and concerns related to Hispanic, Native American, and rural health care provisions are built into the curriculum. A diverse student body is recruited for the MHA program in order to meet the needs articulated by our stakeholders. Many MHA students will already have mid-level experience in hospitals, clinics, healthcare agencies, or health-related organizations.

The inaugural MHA class of 20 graduate students started in August, 2013. This MHA class includes a diverse group of early to mid career healthcare professionals from Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, and Gallup and from Arizona. SPA will enroll 20 new students each Fall semester.

Request for Deferral of Admission
Students who have been accepted to the MHA program and wish to defer admission to a subsequent semester must submit a formal request for a deferral to SPA no later than the Friday of the second week of classes of the original semester of admission. Offers of admission can be deferred for up to one calendar year.

Admission is competitive, and only applicants with strong academic and professional records are admitted to the program. Applicants must have:

A baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university with an undergraduate grade point average for the last 60 hours, or overall major grade point average of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, or equivalent.
