Our Students

Two-thirds of our students are full time while the rest are part-time, many working full time in local government or nonprofit organizations.  Sixty-five percent of students who entered the program 5 years ago graduated within 2-years.  Recently our graduates have taken jobs in all sectors of governance and secured prestigious fellowships such as the Presidential Management Fellowship and ICMA’s Local Government Management Fellowship.  Last years graduates (10) have found employment at all levels of government as well as in the nonprofit sector.
