“The MSSP program at Penn really prepared me to face the broad array of challenges awaiting me in the professional world. From exposure to diverse policy areas, to providing insights into nonprofit financing and administration, I emerged from the MSSP program well-equipped to hit the ground running. Perhaps most important to my personal development, however, was the wonderful community of gifted and engaged students and faculty. Being surrounded by bright, aspiring minds was a constant inspiration to continue down the path I am on with confidence and curiosity.
