The process from application to admission to the first day of class is fantastic. Taking on such a task is daunting, and the support staff does not allow you to get overwhelmed. In fact I have to credit Dana L. with helping change my life!!! I will never forget her! I had spoken to a few other schools but Dana really sold me on the program, and seemed to care. I was only looking for an MHA and did not know I could also get an MBA!
