Master of Public Administration
MPA students in the Public Management Internship Preparation class (PADM 5800) prepared for a mock interview. As part of the internship preparation course, each student goes through a formal interview with a team of experienced MPA alumni. The interviewers then provide each student with recommendations on ways to improve their interviewing skills.
