EMHA Degree Requirements
Degree candidates are required to complete a total of 36 units to be eligible for the Executive MHA degree.
A high level of attendance is expected for EMHA courses. Program participants are required to maintain a minimum 3.0 grade point average to fulfill degree requirements. Full-time students complete the program within 6 semesters. If it becomes necessary to extend the course of study, arrangements can be made through the student services advisor. However, administrative fees and/or higher program costs may apply.
In addition to the synchronous and asynchronous learning modules included in each course, students will participate in a four-day in-residence session, twice during the program. The first in-residence session will occur before the midpoint of the program, and the second session will be a capstone experience during the last semester of the program. The Executive MHA degree program does not require a supervised field placement (residency) in a health care organization.
Available for direct interaction with students, the guest speakers and USC EMHA faculty members will address the future of the health care industry, examine life in the health care C-Suite, discuss current and future trends and define how health care leadership will evolve.
