            James Bradley recommended this school:Marist MPA ProgramI am grateful to the Marist College community, and the Business School particularly, for offering the MPA cohort program in New York City. My graduate degree in Public Administration has granted me the wisdom to understand how much I still need to learn. This is no contradiction. Rather, it is my humble view that the education I received, in the company of my fellow students, opened my eyes to the notion that multiple talents and experiences are all around me. The challenge now is to recognize those talents and allow their presence to drive the greater good. Marist fostered this during my studies, and I miss those classes and experiences
