In this era of globalization, the arena of professional practice is an international one. MHA graduates must be adept at addressing issues that arise both locally and globally. Health management and policy issues are increasingly important and transcend national boundaries.
Successful leaders must have the skills to address these issues from an international and comparative perspective and an understanding of the roles of national and local governments, nongovernmental organizations, and private businesses in different societies in solving these increasingly complex problems.
USC Price is well positioned to assist MHA students in gaining those skills. USC is a global university and enrolls more international students than any other US university. In USC Price, the student body comes from 38 different countries and regions throughout the world. Many of the American students have had international experience prior to joining USC Price through Peace Corps, study-abroad programs, Habitat for Humanity, international community based organizations, and other organizations and programs. MHA students may participate in International Labs and participate in the many programs offered through USC Price’s International Initiatives. The USC and USC Price worldwide alumni network greatly assists USC Price graduates.
