What I most appreciated about the University of Mary’s Healthcare Administration program was the flexibility of online courses and the option to attend five- or eight-week courses, rather than traditional 12-week courses. The online courses allowed me to continue working full-time and spend time with my family. I was also able to adjust my workload as needed. Some semesters I took 15 credits while other semesters I took three credits; at one point I took 12 weeks off for maternity leave."
