Explain how your goals exemplify the distinguishing characteristics of Walden University and the MHA program.

As a healthcare administrator, you will be called upon to clearly and succinctly introduce yourself to many different people. It is helpful to prepare an “elevator speech” to express essential information about yourself and your goals. The term elevator speech is used in business to denote a short, simple message you can convey while positioned next to someone you would like to meet in an elevator. In reality, you may use an elevator speech when you meet people in a variety of settings and situations. Recall the goals you identified in your “Professional Development Plan.”

· Review the Walden University “Vision and Mission” statements web page, including the vision and mission statements for the College of Health Sciences. Also review the “Learning Outcomes—Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA).” Select one or two that are particularly significant for your career aspirations.

Prepare an approximately 30-second audio (or optional video) elevator speech in which you:

· Promote your strengths as a healthcare administrator.

· Explain how your goals exemplify the distinguishing characteristics of Walden University and the MHA program.

· Share your commitment to professional development and lifelong learning.
