Our EMHA program follows a cohort model. Each term, a group of students will be admitted into the program and they will continue to study together throughout the course of the program. The benefits of this model include a greater sense of community, more opportunities for networking and collaboration, and more in-depth coverage of topics.
Students must enroll on a full-time basis and take two courses per semester. The EMHA program is designed for working professionals and can be completed within two years at full-time status while taking eight credit hours each semester. However, adjustments can be made if part-time status is necessary. Our team is here to talk through any concerns regarding part-time or full-time options.
The estimated cost per credit hour for our online EMHA program is $772.69, which includes university fees. Tuition rates and fees are subject to change. Additionally, UCF employee and state tuition waivers are not accepted for this program.
