Webster University’s Master of Health Administration (MHA) program in the George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology was accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education (CAHME) this month.

The CAHME Board of Directors approved the accreditation for an initial three-year term.

“We are honored to have our program recognized by CAHME, the premier accrediting organization for healthcare management programs. Earning this is an acknowledgement that the students in our classes are receiving the most up-to-date training in the field today, which will undoubtedly prepare them for the next steps in their careers,” said Walker School Dean Simone Cummings. “I would like to thank our faculty and staff for their hard work and diligence in helping to attain this recognition.”

According to CAHME’s website, the organization’s mission is to serve the public interest by advancing the quality of healthcare management education. CAHME sets measurable criteria for excellent healthcare management education, supports and assists programs which seek to meet or exceed the criteria, and makes that information available to constituents. CAHME is the only organization recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation to grant accreditation to individual academic programs offering a professional master’s degree in healthcare management education. 

“CAHME's mission is to advance the quality of healthcare management education globally.  CAHME-accredited programs have successfully navigated a complex and careful accreditation process managed by experts in the study and practice of healthcare management,” said Anthony Stanowski, DHA, FACHE, president and CEO of CAHME. “The program meets rigorous standards set by leading academics and practitioners. We recognize their commitment to the field.”   

CAHME was founded in 1968. It currently accredits 150 academic programs in healthcare management, which include programs focusing on healthcare quality and safety and population health. 

Webster University has offered a Master of Healthcare Administration program since 1975. Classes are held online but in a live “synchronous” environment that allows students and faculty to interact in real time.

Besides the CAHME accreditation, the program is also accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.
