“The Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Administration offered through Millikin’s Tabor School of Business MBA Program provides valuable insight into the current issues facing healthcare systems today. The diverse course matter is relevant to the needs of healthcare managers and leaders to develop a deeper understanding of the nuances of the healthcare industry. The small MBA cohort I joined was welcoming and held diverse roles in healthcare. This diversity combined with instructors who are currently employed in the industry allowed us to gain significant perspective into real life situations which can be applied to our current and future roles.”
