"Understanding the present value of a resource and principles of operational management have helped me to understand the processes and decisions that are made all around me each day in the medical center."

“I learned an enormous amount from economics and accounting that has helped me with what I do every day. They have also helped me understand the viewpoints of my colleagues in different areas and how to look at a situation in a different way than I could before.”

“The program has given me the tools to manage in healthcare. It has also opened doors and created connections for me. And I think the most important skill I have gained is time management. To balance life, work and school is very difficult. But once you master that, you can apply it to other things in life."
