Accredited Healthcare Administration Programs by State

State-by-State Listing of CAHME-Accredited Healthcare Administration Programs

As the only organization that accredits individual academic programs that grant master’s degrees in healthcare management, the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) is responsible for promoting, evaluating, and improving graduate healthcare management education in the United States and Canada.

CAHME-accredited master’s programs are offered both online and at campus locations in schools of public health, business/management, public administration/public policy, and allied health and human services. Depending on the focus, these programs may be structured in a number of different ways:

  • Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA)
  • Master of Public Health (MPH)
  • Master of Business Administration (MBA)
  • Master of Public Administration (MPA)
  • Master of Health Services Administration (MHSA)
  • Master of Science in Health Administration (MSHA)

CAHME also accredits a number of dual degree programs that include:

  • JD/MHA
  • MBA/MPH
  • MD/MBA
  • MHA/MBA

As of 2014, most CAHME-accredited programs were housed in schools of public health (38 percent), followed by allied health and services schools (31 percent), business/management schools (25 percent), and schools of public administration/public policy (7 percent).

CAHME-accredited programs may be residential programs for traditional students, or they may be designed as executive programs meant to accommodate the schedules of working professionals through evening or weekend courses and distance learning opportunities.

Programs may be campus-based, fully online (CAHME recently began accrediting fully online programs in January 2015.), or a hybrid of the two.

Further, a number of accelerated programs allow students to earn both their undergraduate and graduate degree in business administration, provided they have completed specific undergraduate requirements.
