Bringing a legal edge to healthcare

Brian Tolkkinen ’21 is the type of person who's always learning. Hamline University’s Master in the Study of Law filled that need—and the needs of his company.

Tolkkinen works as the director of information security at a healthcare software company. In an industry with such a complex compliance system, it’s crucial that he understands the law.

After working with technology for over 20 years, Tolkkinen felt the urge to elevate his career. He initially looked into the Master of Business Administration, but when he discovered Hamline's online MSL, he knew it would take him to the next level in his career.

The learning has given me new perspectives as a thought leader. If the MSL is something you’re interested in, it’s going to be invigorating, with new ideas that you can take to your work."
