Balancing a Busy Career While Earning Your Online Master of Public Administration
I heard from a couple other people how great the programme was, how accessible the programme was, and how easy it was to do while managing a great, you know, busy and vibrant schedule
I chose organisational leadership and management because as I moved through these various jobs that I’ve had of running a PR agency, of running the Connecticut Republican Party, of being in high profile jobs at such a young age, I thought that having the organisational leadership aspect to my résumé and to my background and things like that would be really important when you’re managing a large group of people. And I think that organisational leadership – from the public administration role and also in private business is so key and so crucial. It’s really helped me develop as a person.
When I came into the programme, I was concentrating on running political campaigns of really being the guy behind the scenes that ran political campaigns, ran political organisations. And now I see myself much more in like the larger aspect of management.
When I’m talking to my colleagues and my elected board members on the board of education, and discussing with them public policy and public administration, it’s kind of great to have the background that Norwich has given me when I develop those conversations and have that thought process.
But I always have this want and eagerness to serve the public in some capacity
The professors are very skilled. They know their field, they know how to operate, they know how to engage with the different students regardless of age, regardless of background, and I think that was really important
I would recommend this programme to anyone, especially folks who have a busy schedule. You know, I think that people get nervous about going back to school, getting their master’s degree, and balancing their schedule, and with me, you know, I had a very busy schedule and I was able to balance it and it’s so, so important to realise that you can do it. And Norwich is here to help, Norwich is here to be with you every step of the way. They’ll make sure that you’re successful in this.
