About Our Program

Our online MHA/MBA dual degree program — offered via a partnership between AdventHealth University and Stetson University — allows professionals in the business of health care to quickly advance in their careers by earning two degrees at the same time.

Graduates earn a Master of Health Care Administration in Strategy and Innovation from AdventHealth University and a Master of Business Administration from Stetson University. You can earn these degrees in as few as two years through the combined MHA/MBA program.

Stetson University’s Master of Business Administration program has been ranked among the best online programs in the country for 2023, according to U.S. News & World Report.

A New Type of Leader in Health Care 

The health care industry is searching for leaders. That’s why AHU and Stetson created the MBA/MHA dual degree program to cultivate leaders who understand every aspect of the industry, from patient care to the bottom line, so they can make an impact on their organizations and bring about positive change. The faculty expertise of both universities provides students with a diverse, interprofessional experience designed to impart real-world strategic development.

The MHA/MBA programs are 100% online and no GRE or GMAT test scores are required for admission. Each university provides students with an admissions specialist and academic advisor to coordinate their journey throughout the program. With two universities, our dual degree program provides twice the support, including tutors, retention specialists, chaplains, and helpful faculty members who are invested in seeing you succeed.

Each part of the dual degree program consists of 27 credit hours. Both of your advisors will work with you to create a course completion plan designed to fit your needs. Students often alternate between MHA and MBA courses with each term.


Real-World Education

Course content in both your MBA and MHA classes includes live online sessions combined with recorded lectures. That means you have the flexibility to incorporate the dual degree program into your busy lifestyle, from business courses like Organizational Theory and Behavior to health care courses such as Ethical Issues and Public Policy.
