"The public and non-profit worlds need individuals who can lead and manage at the same time. They must be able to inspire others; set high standards of integrity for themselves and the people that work with them; build strong coalitions in support of the policies they are pursuing; persuade legislators to approve their policy recommendations, and implement them effectively. Those are the skills we help our students acquire as they pursue their MPA degrees."

Michael S. Dukakis
Distinguished Professor of Political Science Former Governor of Massachusetts and 1988 Democratic Nominee for President
