Suggest a school for my wife's MHA?

So my wife already has a Master's in Social Work. She works in a hospital and makes a good salary but she's ambitious and wants to climb up the ranks to eventually get a very high title (VP, CEO, etc.). For that to happen in the long run, she's going to need a MHA (Master's Health Administration). She will do it part time and online (if possible) since she's not a in rush to complete it. Any suggestions on where to do it? What cost should she expect? How long do these programs usually take to complete? Thanks for the information.

A MHA is not a prerequisite for any of those jobs?

Sorry, but performance, leadership responsibility and being identified as top talent is far more important.

IIRC, all of her supervisors have MHA's.

So she wants to be a supervisor or a CEO or VP? I'm confused.

Take a look at the VP of health Orgs and they all have MBAs, years of experience, multiple degrees. In addition to being a doctor or Nurse or lawyer or a combination thereof. Look at their history and they'd also taken on multiple projects, either as PMP as well too.
