Integrated Learning Experience

The Integrated Learning Experience (ILE) within the Master of Health Administration program is a culminating project, in the field of health administration, tailored to the student’s interest. This project, completed in their final semester, allows students to apply classroom learning to a pressing healthcare issue in a real-world setting. A wide variety of opportunities are possible, including projects related to data analytics, financial or strategic planning, operations management, or quality of care issues.
