Jesse Lightle, '01, Master of Urban Administration (M.U.A.)

Wright State University’s Master of Urban Administration provided me the foundation to prepare for my career in local government. The curriculum is based on practical experiences as well as technical competencies. The program is small enough that you get to know your faculty. They care about each student. Many students are working in the field and are able to offer real-world experiences that enrich the learning experience. To this day, some of my fellow students are my closest friends and colleagues.
