"The MPA program provided many opportunities both during and after my completion. Because of the strong connection the program has with international students, the students provided different perspectives on discussion topics empowering me to broaden my perspective on issues we discussed. This provided further growth allowing professors to push us to find our limits and moving us beyond them. The experience provided a good base to start my career. Now I am working to move a state-wide initiative forward with the skills I acquired in the program."
