Broward County Administrator Addresses M.P.A. Capstone



Students in the Huizenga Business School’s M.P.A.


Students in the H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship’ Master of Public Administration (M.P.A.) program recently had the opportunity to hear in-person from Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry when she visited the capstone class on October 25, 2012. In her hour-long give-and-take with the students she discussed her own career and the challenges and opportunities for educated and prepared women to attain chief executive positions in today’s world. Among the many nuggets of advice that Henry shared, she said that the most important career advice that she can give is first to be prepared and then to keep trying.

Jack Pinkowski, Ph.D., program chair for the Public Administration and Real Estate programs at the Huizenga Business School arranged for the visit, saying that Bertha Henry’s generous commitment of time and advice with the students serves as an inspiration for them. “Recently the majority of our M.P.A. students have been women and Bertha serves as a role model who proves it’s not just an M.B.A. that can prepare you for a high-paying position,” said Pinkowski.
