From our students

Headshot of a man in military regalia“I enrolled in Team Collaboration this spring because I wanted to be a part of a small, cohesive group of students from all backgrounds and disciplines that would help me build upon and strengthen my team collaboration skills. Although a lawyer enrolled in the MPA program at UNC, getting the chance to learn about the bioscience sector has been a fantastic opportunity thus far, not found in any other class.”

– Thomas Persico, JD, Judge Advocate, First Lieutenant, U.S. Marine Corps, Master of Public Administration program in UNC School of Government.

When I learned of the Team Collaboration course this spring and the team internship working in the regulatory sector for emerging biotechnology, it was a perfect fit for me to pursue this interest while simultaneously learning about regulatory affairs. I ultimately enrolled because I wanted the opportunity to work on a real-world business project, build my network and connections, apply my leadership skills in an interdisciplinary team, and develop my project management skills.”
