|"The best thing about the program was making lasting connections with fellow students in my cohort and applying real-world experience to completing projects and papers. Many times I was able to use my job experience to get my class work done, so I felt this was a win-win as my work benefited along with my personal growth."

|"My experience as an MNA student was actually transformative. I couldn't think of another word for it. The program took what I had in life — different skills and experiences — and gave me a view of the non-profit sector that I didn't expect. It took my narrow view of my skill set and my potential and expanded my perspective to see the non-profit sector as a whole. It was the best professional parlay I ever made in my life."
Kevin Hickey, MNA '04
"The MNA program has reframed my understanding of the nonprofit world."
Ned Schaub, MNA '03
|"I found that the foundational knowledge I learned at USF was instrumental in helping me to understand and communicate the deeper nuances of the material, to facilitate its application in real life settings."

|"The MPA is a degree designed for people who work in the public sector. When I started my degree work I was basically in a supervisor job. I was interested in becoming a director of a program. And after I completed my studies, within two years, I accomplished that goal."
Barbara Attard, MPA, Alumna
"The breadth of experience of the people in our cohort creates an environment that accelerates learning, where everyone brings a unique viewpoint to the table. I'm certain that I'll stay connected with the people in my cohort for years to come."
