"Obtaining a Masters of Public Administration through Grand Valley State University, was a rewarding experience. Through the program, I had the opportunity to learn the theories behind the practical work, meet experts in the field, and network with students who are now my colleagues. The professors were supportive and helped me achieve my goals of working in city management in West Michigan. I continue to recommend the program and the University to prospective students."
