B.S. in Health Administration, MBA in Health Care Management with a Concentration in Health Information Systems
"With St. Joseph's University’s dual-degree option, I was able to take 12 graduate credits as an undergrad at the undergrad rate before officially being a master’s student. Climbing the administrative ladder, I needed to gain more experience before I could move up. I’m blessed I was able to, through my time at St. Joseph's University."
