American University of Antigua medical students are invited to apply for admission to Plymouth State University’s online MBA in General Management with a certificate in Health Care Administration.
Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), the MBA in General Management with a certificate in Health Care Administration prepares AUA College of Medicine students to work with hospital administrators and provides the foundational knowledge necessary to run or join a medical practice.
The online MBA health care administration curriculum consists of ten courses: six Health Care Administration core and four MBA core. Students accepted into the MBA degree program register for one, three-credit course per ten-week term. Complete the program in as little as two and a half years (3 credits per term) on a part-time basis or take up to six years to better accommodate your schedule. No admission tests (GMAT or GRE) are required.
The PSU MBA requires that all students satisfy 11 Common Professional Components (CPC) for acceptance into the MBA degree program. CPCs may be satisfied using coursework, work experience, non-credit workshops, CLEP or DANTES tests, or a departmental competency exam. There is a $75 fee for each competency exam.
Application and Admissions Process
We encourage you to apply online to the MBA in General Management with a focus in Health Care Administration. Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree will be eligible for MBA consideration.
Once you’ve accessed Plymouth State’s online application, complete the program section with the following:
- Program of Study: Master of Business Administration (MBA)
- Major: General Management (GEMG)
- Cohort: PSU-AUA MBA (DAUA)
To streamline the application process, you may authorize Plymouth State to use the application forms, résumés, personal statements, and the three letters of recommendation (your AUA interview will count as one of the letters) that you submitted when applying for admission to AUA. Official transcripts from all collegiate institutions attended should be sent to the Plymouth State University College of Graduate Studies, 17 High Street, MSC 11, Plymouth, NH 03264-1595.
In order to release your AUA records to Plymouth State you must complete and fax the FERPA release form to (917) 677-7166 or scan and e-mail the release form to Danielle Hermon. You’ll receive a confirmation of receipt of the FERPA form within two (2) business days. If you don’t receive a confirmation, resend the form to Danielle Hermon. AUA will not release your records without this form. This form is the only record AUA has that you intend to pursue admission to the Plymouth State MBA program.
Complete the remainder of the online application and follow the prompts to pay the non-refundable $75 application fee.
Tuition and Financial Aid
Students who enroll in one course per term will be eligible to apply for Title IV Federal Aid. Please note: non-US citizens are welcome to enroll in the program but may not be eligible for US Federal Student loans. See fafsa.ed.gov for additional information. Visit the Financial Aid website for complete eligibility information and instructions to apply. AUA students are welcome to use the ‘living expense’ money to pay for housing and transportation while in Antigua or on rotations, however Title IV funds from Plymouth (or any other grad school) should never be used to pay tuition at AUA, as this violates federal student loan regulations.
Current in-state and out-of-state tuition rates are set annually by the Board of Trustees of the University System of New Hampshire and are subject to change. Students should expect to spend $100-$200 on texts and materials each term. A one time $75 application fee must be paid upon submitting the application.
