The Career You Want. The Skills You Need.

Become a professional city, county, town or village manager, a growing and dynamic profession.

We directly participate with the organizations and practicing professionals that will be important to your career such as the International City County Management Association, where Professor McEvoy, a former ICMA Vice President, is a member of the Government Affairs and Policy Committee and the Credentialing Board, as well as the National Association of County Administrators (NACA). The design of our expert concentration team is the result of a continuing analysis of the current and future needs of local governments.
