I felt that CAHME accreditation mattered when selecting a school to attend for my Master’s in Health Administration because I wanted to be sure I was getting an education that would help me reach my goals, in a program that was verified to be successful, and through a school that was striving to always be better. I think for me, it was really hard to decipher between which schools were actually high quality programs, and not just “brand names”, and seeing which schools were CAHME accredited truly helped narrow down my decision and ultimately lead to an excellent program and a great job in my field after graduation. I also felt that for those not familiar with my school or program, it gave them piece of mind knowing the rigor and standards behind the education were supported by CAHME accreditation.
