Three years ago, I was starting Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio while I was working on my master’s degree in Public Administration (MPA), specializing in Nonprofit Management.
After a rigorous program and the most stressful exit exam of my career (on which my degree depended), I graduated with a more comprehensive understanding of how public administration and nonprofit organizations work together and fit into the fabric of American society.
Although I was working towards a master’s degree in nonprofit management, a course on how to actually start one didn’t exist. I found that a bit odd. The program was entirely geared towards executives or employees, leaving pioneering founders out of the equation.
