Why Master of Healthcare Innovation

The online healthcare innovation master’s degree is ideal for students who seek to lead in health management.
Healthcare innovation doesn’t only come from one process, outlook or workflow. Instead, it often involves a variety of approaches and considerations. In a similar fashion, the MHI program attracts students with many different backgrounds, both in and outside the world of healthcare. Participants join the program with backgrounds in nursing, health sciences and healthcare architecture, as well as engineering, business administration and journalism.

What is a degree in health management and healthcare innovation?

The ASU healthcare innovation master’s program is a fully online degree in health management for students who are already health practitioners, or who desire to become a leader in the health care sector. Thanks to a multi-disciplinary approach to health care leadership and administration, the healthcare innovation degree prepares graduates to navigate one of the most changing professional environments: health care.
