“The MHA program is exactly what every working healthcare provider or administrator needs: flexible, friendly, and realistic. The professors made it clear that they were there to support us in any way possible. They knew the majority of students were working full-time in the industry and had demanding schedules to navigate. Without a doubt, the MHA program gave me exactly what I needed, when I needed it most.”
