Why did you pursue your chosen degrees?
“I knew that obtaining an MBA was the best route to securing a leadership role in health care management. It provided the content, exposure and connections to a network that may not have been attainable without the degree. After several years of work experience, I completed an MBA and a master’s in public health (MPH). The programs provided me with the management and leadership skills required for a successful career in business, supported by the public and environmental health knowledge helpful in working in a hospital or other health care setting. The MPH prepares students to become public health professionals capable of addressing current global health problems. Core coursework will include biostatistics, epidemiology, social and behavioral determinants of health, management sciences, practice/problem-solving, environmental health and biological sciences.”
