William Beutler, online healthcare mba program student

What attracted me to Case Western was the MBA program. Working at Cleveland Clinic, many of my peers, colleagues, and mentors actually graduated from the CWRU MBA program and said great things. Applying for the program was an easy decision for me to not only advance my career but also obtain an MBA degree from a great school.
