The Master of Hospital Administration (MHA-Hospital) program aims to create a cadre of qualified managers for the sector's burgeoning hospital market. The need for a new category of healthcare professional—the hospital manager—comes about as hospitals become increasingly complex technical environments that employ people with widely varying skill sets. This efficiency requirement must be met without sacrificing the humane and caring environment that the sick require. The MHA (Hospital) program trains students in planning, operational, and project management of hospitals, as well as in the managerial facets of clinical and support services, preparing them for leadership roles in the hospital sector. The curriculum also teaches participants how to manage resources, information, and financial systems in healthcare facilities while developing the perspectives, attitudes, and management abilities. The MHA (Hospital) Degree is intended to be finished in 4 semesters over the course of 2 years, although there is an option to finish in a maximum of 5 years from the date of registration.

MHA (Hospital) program graduates find employment managing a range of specialized services in hospitals, including in the public and private sectors. Their duties also include planning and designing new services and facilities, as well as supervising numerous sections at big hospitals. Students have previously obtained jobs in prestigious corporate- and trust-run hospitals around the nation. Recently, job openings have also appeared in the hospital consulting industry, the health care IT sector, and the health insurance industry.
