Master of Health Administration (Community Care)

The Ted Rogers School of Management’s MHA(CC) is the first graduate program of its kind in Canada. With the increasing importance of community care across healthcare systems, there is a growing demand for graduate-prepared leaders in private, public and not-for-profit organizations. This program builds on Ryerson’s expertise in providing career-focused programs and experiential learning opportunities as numerous healthcare organizations have partnered with the program in the design and delivery of this innovative curriculum.  

Focusing on diversity, leadership and entrepreneurship, the MHA(CC) curriculum is designed to prepare graduates to effectively start, lead and/or manage organizations within this dynamic and growing sector.

This program is designed for professionals already working in healthcare and those interested in transitioning into this vital and rewarding sector. The program’s convenient downtown location and modular format enables students to work full-time while completing the program in 16 months.
