The Master of Health Administration (MHA) program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, the world-renowned and oldest school of public health in the nation, is a graduate professional degree that prepares future healthcare executives for management and leadership positions dedicated to improving health and health services delivery across all sectors.
