What Do Top MHA Programs Look For In Potential Applicants? When seeking admission into a prestigious MHA program, it’s important to know what they look for in potential applicants. Typically, you will need a bachelor’s degree with a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 5. The degree does not necessarily require a health care specialization. Some MHA programs require standardized tests like the GRE, while others may require specific prerequisite courses. Most programs want you to have prior career experience in health care. However, that’s the bare minimum to get into a top MHA program. Top MHA programs want you to go above and beyond in every possible admission category. Thus, it may make sense to take these prerequisite courses, particularly if you need to boost your GPA. Leadership experience is an ideal attribute for a potential candidate. Also, applicants who have experience in health information management or organizational management will exceed expectations.
a. Obtain a Bachelor’s degree, preferably in Healthcare Administration or with coursework in medical terminology, business, marketing, health care policy, human resources, leadership, and finance. b. Secure a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.5. However, some programs require a 3.0 or higher, so a greater GPA will give you better odds. Request your transcripts from all postsecondary institutions. One should show a conferred baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. c. The application fee for each program you are interested in applying to usually ranges from $65 to $100. Your fees can quickly add up, so make sure to apply to programs that you will realistically attend.
