General University Information
Tulane University (officially The Tulane University of Louisiana or simply TU) is a private, nonsectarian research university located in New Orleans, Louisiana, United States. Founded as a public medical college in 1834, the school grew into a comprehensive university in 1847 and was eventually privatized under the endowments of Paul Tulane and Josephine Louise Newcomb in 1884. Tulane is a member of the Association of American Universities and the colloquial Southern Ivy League.
Graduates are employed with public and private hospitals, ambulatory care organizations, long-term care institutions, health maintenance organizations, insurance companies, multi-institutional systems, and other organizations concerned with the planning, delivery, and financing of personal health services. The program has been fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) since 1971.
A baccalaureate degree is required for admission to the MHA degree program. The ideal educational preparation would include study in the natural, social, and behavioral sciences, mathematics, economics, business and humanities. There are no specific educational prerequisites since no one undergraduate major is preferred above others.
The School’s minimum admission requirements include a GRE score of 1000 or higher. The Program also seeks students with a 3.0 undergraduate GPA or better. The MHA program of study allows exceptions for outstanding performance either on the GRE or the undergraduate GPA, impressive service or professional experience, or strong recommendations.
