MEET MS IN HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT STUDENT SPENCER TWIGG
Spencer Twigg has big career plans: The 23-year-old wants to become the CEO of a hospital. It’s a goal he’s been working toward for years. And while he knows many peers with the same ambition, he’s got something he believes separates him from the pack: a Master of Science degree in Health Care Management from Johns Hopkins Carey Business School.
“I wanted something different, something that would set me apart,” Twigg said. “I found that at Carey.”
