MS in Higher Education Administration
“In my search for the perfect graduate program I found Bay Path College’s Master of Science in Higher Education Administration (HEA). It is the most feasible program for me—online, affordable and flexible. With the acceptance of several transfer credits, the program will only take about a year and a half for me to complete. Throughout my professional life I have always taken action to advance my career, and the HEA was the next reasonable step.
The online program is comfortable, the discussion process with classmates and faculty is remarkably smooth, and their feedback is incredible. The HEA faculty are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and they bring strong experiences in higher education to each and every one of their classes. The classes have enhanced my skills in leadership, economics, and management.
For more than a decade, I worked in a higher education institution teaching community programs as well as courses in nutrition. To build my knowledge in financial management, I shifted careers and focused on my accounting skills. I just recently returned to a higher education setting—Dartmouth Medical School in Hanover, NH, where I manage grant funds for the institution’s ‘Let No Woman Be Overlooked’ Breast and Cervical Cancer Program, which provides free breast and cervical cancer screenings to New Hampshire women who meet certain requirements. In my current role, I can apply my past experiences as well as relate the knowledge I will gain from the HEA graduate program in order to grow in my career.”
