Joseph N. Garba, MPA ‘05

State Legislative Representative for the City of New York
New York City & Albany

“Rockefeller College’s internship requirement puts candidates in real-life government work experiences and trains us to think like government managers. The College’s location in the Capital Region of New York State increases the options for matching students with employers. I spent my evenings in class but my days at the Capitol as an assistant legislative representative for a statewide organization, a position that turned into my first post-MPA job. From Day One at Rockefeller College, you are taught to understand the consequences of your professional decisions on the constituency you serve—a key to being a successful government manager.”
