As an aspiring Health Care Management professional, I chose to complete my graduate studies at Saint Louis University because the university offers the best and most advanced MBA/MHA program. The rigorous, fast-track MBA program at the John Cook School of Business, coupled with one of the nation's top MHA (Master of Health Administration) programs at the College for Public Health & Social Justice, gave me the best opportunity to further develop my career in Health Care Management. The program's focus on group project work and decision making has perfectly prepared me for my career as a Health Care Consultant with Accenture’s Health Management Consulting group.
As a society we are obsessed with metrics. We feel good when a milestone is achieved. When most of us think about milestones, we generally view them as marking progress toward a destination. A journey if you will, along a road from where we are to where we want to be. However, a road is often a two way street, and milestones on that road are sometimes viewed very differently by travelers passing one another in opposite directions.
