Student Experience

While we certainly pride ourselves on the quality of our curriculum, living in Austin and being a part of the Texas MPA community provide plenty of opportunities outside of the classroom, too!

When you enter our program, you become a part of an energetic culture that is as unique as it is exciting. The diverse community you’ll belong to will not only help you grow as a student: It will help prepare you for the professional and personal challenges you’ll face after graduation, as well. With interactive presentations from prominent business professionals in our Distinguished Speakers Lyceum and outstanding student-run organizations like the MPA Council, being a part of our program is a fantastic way to learn from the best and prepare yourself to become an industry leader.
