Top 25 Most Engaged Health Administration Alumni Groups

Top MHA AlumniWelcome to our Annual List of the 2013 Top 25 Most Engaged MHA Alumni Groups.  In particular, these programs provide insight into how active the school, students, and alumni are on social networks.  Ultimately this is important because this list shows the level of engagement these schools have with respect to the alumni from their school.

Although much of the accomplishment is due to alumni participation, there is no doubt these excellent programs had an impact on the ways alumni choose to stay connected.  We are proud of these programs for maintaining some of the highest academic standards, while still finding time to allow open communication with students, alumni, and the public.  We expanded the 2013 List to 25 schools, with a description of the top 10.  Our 2012 list was extremely successful and we look forward to any questions or concerns with this list.

Our list was developed based off of a standard formula.  This formula took into account the number of participating alumni in the programs alumni Linkedin Group, whether the program had a dedicated Alumni Association for MHA Graduates, dedicated Alumni Website, dedicated Alumni Newsletter, and a Alumni Facebook Group.  The sole requirement for this list was a dedicated Linkedin Alumni Group.  We sorted through numerous programs and developed a formula for these rankings.  Primarily, a large Linkedin Alumni Group ensured a listing, but some programs beat other larger groups due to newsletters and websites for alumni.For more detailed information, or if you would like to submit your school for next year’s list, please contact us.
