Once he finished his undergraduate degree, Josh Warburg joined the AmeriCorps NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps), doing national community service. After volunteering for two years, he wanted to learn more about how non-profits can be more effective, and decided to pursue his Master of Public Administration degree at the Monterey Institute.

He was drawn to MIIS because of the international focus and language requirement—plus, as an alumnus of AmeriCorps, he was also able to take advantage of financial aid benefits the Institute offers as part of its partnership with AmeriCorps.

One thing he liked about his classes was the real world experience he got, working with local organizations on short-term projects and being able to apply concepts he was in the process of learning in the classroom.
