Become the leader your organization needs.

In 1982, IHA partnered with the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs to create the Management Institute. Since its founding, more than 1,300 hospital managers have graduated from the Management Institute.

Those managers have taken what they’ve learned—health care specific financial management and teamwork skills, management insights and conflict-resolution strategies—and immediately applied their new knowledge to their respective workplaces. Our graduates have become the leaders their organizations need—and you can too.

​The Curriculum

The IHA Management Institute curriculum is comprised of 10 class sessions spread out over a six-month period. Classes are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and meet at the O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs on the IUPUI campus, unless otherwise n​oted. Complete at least nine of the 10 sessions and you’ll qualify for the Certified Health Care Manager designation.

98 percent of participants are "very satisfied" with our program.

Small Classes

With an average ​class size between 35 and 40, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to interact one-on-one with your instructor, or work in small groups with your talented classmates. You’ll walk away from the Management Institute with new insight about how to manage—and with new professional connections to help you do so.


Institu​te tuition of $2,450 includes parking, course materials, refreshment breaks and lunch. Non-members may register at the rate of $2,950. As a reminder, an individual employed by an Indiana hospital member is considered a member of IHA.


The next session begins on July 7, 2020. Registration is now open!
