The M.H.A. program at Des Moines University is dedicated to delivering a high quality and results-oriented curriculum designed to prepare graduates for meaningful careers in health administration and services delivery. Students at all stages of their careers are eligible for admission to DMU. Program faculty have determined that students who are early to mid-careerists; have several years of management experience; and have an scholastic record that supports their ability to meet the academic rigor of our program are generally the most successful in our program.
Please note that in addition to considering the criteria discussed above, the Admissions Committee will take a comprehensive approach when reviewing application files and selecting students for admission. For example, the Admissions Committee will also acknowledge applicants’ commitment to their communities through volunteer service; prior degrees, certifications, awards, and achievements; and importantly; the ability to successfully complete the application process. This approach allows the program to remain flexible yet focused on ensuring we admit a qualified and diverse group of students to the program.
The criteria and student selection process is expected to result in admission of a diverse class of highly motivated and prepared, professionals ready to take their own personal development to the next level. We look forward to considering your application.
