Chandler graduated with a MHA in 2017 and is currently the Operations Manager at the Neurosciences Center Hale Building for Transformative Medicine Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Why did you choose Suffolk University to pursue your MHA degree?

While searching for graduate school programs I had two priorities in mind: career networking opportunities and supportive faculty. After speaking with admission staff, attending an alumni event and speaking with the program director, Professor Rick Gregg, I knew that I could have both of these at Suffolk University.

What about the Suffolk MHA program was significant to you and why?

It was very clear from the start of my application that Suffolk alumni and professors had many career connections in the Boston hospital community. When I inquired about internship possibilities at my initial interview, I walked out with confidence that this program would build the foundation to my career in healthcare management.

How has the MHA degree from Suffolk impacted your career or helped you achieve your goals?

With the assistance and support from my MHA professors, I was able to work as a Practice Coordinator at Tufts Medical Center while completing my MHA courses. Six months before graduation, I accepted a job as Practice Manager at the Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital. I am now working as the Operations Manager for the Neurosciences Center at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital- and this is just the beginning.

Would you recommend Suffolk University to someone who is considering an online MHA? Why?

Suffolk University is a reputable, tight-knit community. Your professors will continue to be your support system during and after the program.
