Jeffrey Moss, MPPA ’18

My MPPA degree provided many employment opportunities across various market sectors. The private sector’s demand for public administration professionals is considerable, and growing. Depending on your focus or specialization, you could be eligible to work in a wide variety of settings, from public health agencies to private. Or, you can start your own nonprofit organization.

I currently work with refugee students from all around the world. I would love to start a nonprofit that would do more to provide for the educational needs of refugee children and this degree will assist me in doing so.
