The ASU MHI degree, like all of health management degrees offered through the Edson College of Nursing and Innovation, uses courses that engage learners as its foundation. The Seven Pillars of Innovation were developed by the founders of the Master of Healthcare Innovation degree program, and they serve as the foundation for the program’s curriculum.

MHI students complete a final capstone at the end of their degree, and the Seven Pillars must be integrated into the culminating innovation project.
