I am personally committed to working with faculty and students to develop and maintain one of the nation's finest and most comprehensive programs in health management. I and the other MHA faculty members are committed to presenting a systemic and highly integrated approach to the learning of health management principles within a challenging 'adult-learning' oriented environment.
