Blair College of Health at Queens University of Charlotte offers an online Master of Health Administration (MHA) degree program. The online MHA program is specifically designed for healthcare professionals who wish to advance into positions of leadership and influence in the healthcare industry. The MHA curriculum is based on the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE) core competencies of leadership, communication, professionalism, business expertise, and healthcare knowledge.

A capstone course allows students to apply what they have learned in a real-world setting.

Queens University uses the MyCourses Learning Management System (LMS). Courses are completely asynchronous with collaboration taking place through Skype, IM, shared blogging, and online community tools. In addition, a virtual course wall allows students to view assignments, class readings, syllabi, and group assignments, and to interact with faculty and peers through discussion groups.
