Pfeiffer University MHA program allowed me to fulfill a lifelong goal. Being a nontraditional student, the combined format of the seated and online classes allowed me to have the flexibility I needed to be a student, go to work, and be a father. Pfeiffer University MHA faculty and staff are more than just professors and teachers; they are mentors, councelors, and friends. Their guidance and support allowed me to continue to do what I love and grow as a healthcare professional.
