Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine’s graduate school received high marks in the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings with its Master of Health Administration (MHA) program maintaining its place among the top 20 best healthcare management programs in the nation.

The MHA program is ranked No. 17 for the second straight year among the top 75 programs selected in the magazine’s Best Graduate Schools 2021 edition. The MHA program resides in the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine’s Department of Health Policy and Management. It is a highly selective program that prepares graduates for careers in management and leadership positions at hospitals, large health systems, consulting firms and other healthcare delivery organizations across the country.

For the second straight year, U.S. News ranked Tulane’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine No. 13 among more than 100 schools and programs offering public health and places the SPHTM among the very top schools and programs of public health. Tulane’s SPHTM was the first school of public health established in the United States in 1834.

“I am very proud of the tremendous work our faculty have been doing to make our health administration program among the very best in the country.”

- SPHTM Dean Thomas LaVeist

“I am very proud of the tremendous work our faculty have been doing to make our health administration program among the very best in the country,” SPHTM Dean Thomas LaVeist said. “And, I am particularly proud of the accomplishments of the program’s alumni, many of whom are c-suite executives running some of most venerable healthcare organizations in the world.”

Tulane’s School of Social Work maintained its national ranking for the second straight year, coming in at No. 36 among the over 250 schools that offer the graduate program.

“Our ranking is attributable to the hard work and dedication of the School's top-tier faculty who have developed and refined social work education focused on clinical and community-based practice," said TSSW Dean Patrick Bordnick. "The faculty, staff, students, and alumni from the Tulane School of Social Work are making significant impacts in our local community, across the country, and around the world doing work that matters."
