The Pepperdine School of Public Policy deepened my understanding of the ideological debate in America. While that may sound like an academic exercise, it has provided great insight into policy making here in Washington, D.C., and at the Pentagon. The school's focus on the U.S. Constitution and the history I learned have been critical to my participation in meaningful policy formation.

In addition to traditional book learning, the curriculum's emphasis on teamwork and interpersonal skills development has been invaluable in my workplace and enabled me to compete successfully as a Presidential Management Fellow against candidates of other top-ranked schools.
