My Widener Experience
why did you decide to pursue a health care management mba at widener?
Widener has a well-known evening program for the MBA. It was accredited by the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA), the predecessor of the Commission on Accreditation Healthcare Management Education (CAHME), which made a big difference when looking at the other programs in health care management. Widener is one of only three programs locally that is CAHME accredited.
what is your favorite memory of widener?
I knew almost nothing about health care management when I started at Widener. The
professors were patient with my questions and helped my development. I owe my professional
career to what I learned at Widener.
My Professional Experience
what do you like most about your current position?
I benefited from Widener’s MBA in health care management, which was then and still is accredited by CAHME. I like working to insure that students going into health care management programs can be confident that they are receiving an education that prepares them well to succeed.
what advice would you give a prospective student considering your graduate program?
1) Make sure you choose a CAHME-accredited program. 2) Make sure your program encourages internships as part of its program. 3) Take a good look at Widener's program.
