“Attending IPFW has been a valuable investment in terms of both my personal and professional development. During my time at IPFW, I have had the opportunity to have professors in the public policy department who truly care about my success as a student and a professional. The health care administration program has given me the confidence and ability to move forward in my career. I will continue to be thankful for my choice of choosing IPFW’s health administration program and all of the opportunities it has provided me.”
