Student Perspective

“The MSA HPT program has provided me with consistent high quality content delivered by a very supportive and knowledgeable faculty.  The core MBA courses gave me the foundation to take my HPT knowledge and make more informed and effective decisions and contributions that has already proven to have produced great results in my current job.  Although the MSA HPT program has been completely online, the experience has created an affinity for UWF.  I would highly recommend this program to anyone looking to address organizational performance problems.”  — Paul Clarke
