"The Executive MS for SS/ISE in Health Systems in Manhattan was one of the best decisions I could have made for my career. Having received my Bachelor's degree from Binghamton University in English Literature and Rhetoric, it was important for me to be able to stay competitive in the field with current work experience while also being able to keep up with the learning curve of engineering and systems principles that I had never encountered before. The year-long program allowed me to continue to work full-time within the healthcare industry in NYC while also completing my Master's degree and earning Lean Six Sigma certification. The faculty and SSIE department were extremely knowledgeable, flexible, and accommodating to my academic needs and professional schedule. All companies I interviewed with were very impressed with the unique degree, and within a few months of graduation I was able to attain a considerable promotion. I definitely recommend this program to anyone interested in enhancing their career in healthcare quality and performance improvement."

"The Executive M.S. in Industrial and Systems Engineering Manhattan program served as a turning point in my career and jump-started my future in healthcare. From day one of the program I was introduced to the many issues American healthcare is facing in our society, and taught ways to approach and fix them. The amount of relevant material I learned that I was able to use immediately was one of the great strengths of the program. Having classes on Saturday's allowed me the opportunity to simultaneously participate in an internship program where I applied all of the knowledge I was learning. Having professors that had years of experience in healthcare really helped in bridging the gap between the curriculum and real world practices. I would highly recommend this program to anyone wanting to pursue a career in healthcare. It truly propelled my career into an area I could not have previously imagined."
