“Completing the MPA program helped me better understand how to navigate a leadership role in the non-profit/public sector. More importantly, it has helped me take the next step in my career in the public sector by building upon some of the skills and experience I already had. The program was flexible enough to fit my specific career interest, and I formed professional relationships with people I keep in touch with to this day.”
