About Rush University

The research administration program is designed to prepare formally trained, advanced-level personnel for research administration leadership positions at colleges and universities, government agencies, hospitals, non-profit agencies and industry. The Master of Science in research administration (MSRA) program provides a unique online graduate education experience for current and future professionals in all areas of research administration.  

Students in the program work with faculty and scientists to learn research methods, data analysis, and descriptive and inferential statistics in order to develop an understanding of how principal investigators design and perform research. As part of the program, students must complete an investigational research project in their chosen area of specialization to be submitted for publication and/or formally presented at an appropriate professional meeting, thus further advancing the profession of research administration.
As a leadership program, the MSRA provides graduates with the core competencies needed for practice as a research manager and provides the foundation needed to assume professional leadership roles in research administration. Interaction with faculty, a practicum in research administration and a research paper are key elements to the program. The result is an outstanding education in research administration, and a sense of growth as you become a leader in the research administration profession.
