In as little as 24 months, you can have your MHA with Business Analytics Emphasis and be ready for the next step in your career.

Learn the intricacies of technology interfaces and security within health care organizations through this specialized program offered at Texas Woman’s University. The MHA with Business Analytics focuses on the data used by healthcare organizations and prepares you for management roles in this area.

Our hybrid and online-format classes allow you to attend grad school in Houston and are televised to the Collin Higher Education Center in McKinney, TX — whichever is most convenient for you.

Why MHA in Business Analytics at TWU?

A private school education at a public school price

Part of the Texas Woman’s experience is keeping costs low and education quality high. As a result, TWU is the most affordable public university in the DFW Metroplex and is ranked 5th (tied) among U.S. universities for diversity, according to U.S. News & World Report. For more information on costs, visit our Cost of Attendance site.

Our small class sizes also allow you to interact closely with your classmates and professors.

TWU does more to build women leaders

Only 5.4 percent of Fortune 500 CEOs are women, and only 25 percent of senior managers and executives within those companies are women. TWU is working to help change that.

More than 70 percent of our faculty and staff across the university are women. While COB faculty prepare you to tackle the male-dominated world of business, our outreach staff work closely with employers to bring networking and employment opportunities to campus.

For our budding entrepreneurs, TWU’s Center for Women in Business is the state’s only university center dedicated to women’s entrepreneurship and business ownership. The Center provides tools for you to succeed including access to training/coaching, funding, mentoring and networking opportunities.

TWU believes in opening doors for its students

The Career Connections Center on each campus provides advising services and tailored career planning for our students and alumni, from career advising and networking to negotiating a salary after graduation. The Career Center has also implemented Handshake, a unique resume reviewing and job opening database that works to fast-track your job search.

The COB takes it one step further with a team of Outreach and External Relations staff that work with the Career Connections Center to keep our business students in-the-know on employment opportunities and networking events.
