A Message From Our Students


"The CNPM program offered at The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M offers the most rewarding and "real-life" challenging graduate courses that I have ever experienced. It was the course description and the delivery method that initially caught my attention. The work is hard (I'm not going to lie) and the schedule is demanding... but the payoff - the knowledge learned, is unsurpassable."
— Barbara J. Ward,
Class of 2010
