BOOKMARKED
Hi all,

I am interested in a program that has an emphasis on public policy, governmental affairs, or public administration. Or a program with a strong dual/joint MPP/MPA degree. Please advise on Top 25 MBA programs.

I am interested in furthering my consulting career associated with regulatory issues companies face, and want to eventually enter politics.

Thanks
Current Student
