The MPPA program laid the groundwork for my career in administration and understanding policy as it pertains to my field of work. When working in the arena of management along with other partners-stakeholders, my background in public policy and administration has allowed for me to view discussions in both qualitative and quantitative points of view leading to inquiry for better discussions and honing the skill. Including collaborating with other agencies to support our goals.
