    I applied in Health Policy and Management......

    Minnesota has a great MHA in Healthcare Management progam (#2 in US).

    ...but I am doing the MPH in the same those rankings concern my program as well (MPH in HPM)?

    Tulane's MHA in Healthcare Management is a lot lower....30 something, but again, I'm doing the MPH side of things...

    MPH rankings are as follows: UMinn #10 ; Tulane #13

    Obviously rankings aren't everything.....

    But how would you read these rankings (for the MHA in respects to an MPH in HPM)?

    Oh, sorry, my post was probably misleading...

    I'm actually scheduled to attend one of these 2 schools in the fall. Haven't been there yet!

    You can look at the advantages and disadvantages of both schools....I heard that both tulane and minnesota are good....I've heard that both programs are good but i' more familiar with minnesota---it's got everything, health administration, public health, medicine, health informatics, policy, research, etc....I think i'd go with minnesota but that's me.....I like Minnesota, personally...

    i'm trying to decide if I should go to Indiana University or George Washington University for healthcare management

    If Minnesota is that highly ranked (2nd) for Healthcare Management/Administration and you're going for a MPH Health Policy and Management, then that's where you should go, in my opinion. Because as a HPM concentrator, you'll probably have quite a few classes with MHA people and you'll have the same professors etc. So for your particular program it makes sense.

    If you have an opportunity, maybe visit Tulane and/or Minnesota because ultimately, rankings can't really tell you which is the best school for you.

    I'm partial to Tulane myself bcos I think that's where I'm going but I'm doing the MPH in Global Maternal and Child Health so it makes sense for me. But if Minnesota is so highly ranked in a program that closely related to yours, I'm thinking it's going to be hard to turn them down.

    That's just my 2cents though. Good luck deciding... I know how hard it is, I'm having a hard time making a decision too.
