“The healthcare leadership track offered by the Elms MBA program was exactly what I was looking for. The courses were taught by professionals who were respected experts in their field and went beyond just the theoretical concepts. They instead focused on teaching students how to apply these concepts in the real world and further hone deep reasoning and critical thinking skills. I draw on the knowledge and skills I learned during my time in the program almost every single day. Less than a year after completing my MBA I was promoted to my current role. I know my Elms MBA helped to position me for that opportunity and continued success in my career.”
