I chose this organization as it relates to my field of study, which is MBA in medical management. One aspect of the company that is of particular interest to me is Acadia’s philosophy and management style that upholds flexibility and collaboration. The company values input from staff members, physicians, nurses, and other key stakeholders. The mission of the organization is “to create a world-class organization that sets the standard of excellence in the treatment of specialty behavioral health and addiction disorders.”
