Mission, Vision, and Values

Mission

The mission of the Rutgers MHA program is to train entry-level and early-to-mid-level careerists throughout New Jersey and its neighboring regions for positions of increasing responsibility and leadership in the healthcare field, and to contribute to the health, economic, and social well-being of New Jersey and nearby communities through research, policy, and planning in healthcare.

Our graduates will be prepared to recognize and adapt to the challenges of a rapidly changing healthcare environment. Our practitioner-instructors provide our students with insights based on their broad industry experience, as well as an understanding of the challenges today’s health professionals will face as the field evolves. Our faculty is committed to advancing their professional expertise in the field of health administration, to ongoing innovation in instructional approaches and method, as well as contributing to the field’s knowledge base through research and service.

Vision

The Bloustein School’s Master in Health Administration programs strive to become top-tier, nationally-ranked programs in preparing entry-level, early careerists, and mid-career level healthcare leaders, in the rapidly evolving health administration profession. Our faculty, in conjunction with our Advisory Board, will energize our students to sustain their commitment to changes in approaches, processes, and strategies in the healthcare industry. In so doing, our students will become forward-thinking thought- and practice-leaders in healthcare, as the field faces future challenges and embraces future opportunities.
