Nothing ‘Mini’ About Topics in Rutgers’ Mini-MPA™ Program

Michael Theokas

Former Scarlet Knights’ offensive tackle Michael Theokas, RC’95, has owned restaurants and had a budding political career as a borough councilman in Hightstown. But the lure of public service led him to leave the restaurant business to become the borough’s fulltime business administrator last year.

Despite his wide-ranging experience as a businessman and public official, Theokas felt he could use some additional coaching for his new role.

“When I got the job in Hightstown, I immediately looked to learn more about this field and improve my job performance,” he said.

The “mini” master’s in public administration – Mini-MPA™ – a noncredit certificate program offered by Rutgers’ Center for Executive Leadership in Government at its headquarters in downtown New Brunswick, fit the bill.

Theokas completed the program last spring and says he learned “a great deal” from it.
