MSHCPM Admissions Requirements


A Heinz College education will focus your passion and idealism through a premier program grounded in strong management and problem solving skills. Our MSHCPM program is aimed at outstanding students who want to develop and contribute their management skills in a health care setting. With each entering class, we seek to create a diverse community of future health care and policy managers.

Heinz College students have no singular profile: they have a variety of undergraduate majors, unique strengths, and differing amounts and types of work experience. Together, we represent an amazingly lively population preparing to take on the challenges facing health care organizations today.

A successful applicant will have an undergraduate degree from an accredited institution, (preferred QPA of 3.0 or better), relevant full-time, part-time or volunteer experience (including internships), competitive GRE/GMAT scores (see class profile for details) and strong communications skills demonstrated within application.

For more information on our student body, including demographics and test scores, view the class profile.

Because of the quantitative nature our graduate programs, the faculty requires that all incoming students have a solid quantitative foundation prior to enrollment at Heinz College. Since our successful applicants come from diverse academic backgrounds, we offer the Quantitative Skills Summer Program (QSSP) to prepare our incoming students who did not previously complete college-level courses like advanced algebra, pre-calculus and statistics.
